The First Female War Correspondents

Meet the women who look war in the face

With a panel of experts, news editors, filmmakers, and relatives, this talk will explore the lives and works of the first female war correspondents. Clare Hollingworth started at the Daily Telegraph in 1939 and had a 60-year career – which includes being the first to spot German tanks on the Polish border and identifying Kim Philby as the "Third Man". She is now 102 and lives in Hong Kong. Gerda Taro, on the other hand, became the first to die on assignment in 1937 while covering the Spanish civil war. Pioneering and courageous, this is an opportunity to enter a historically under-represented world. Best available seating.
