The documentary, “Pioneering Women War Correspondents,” produced by Milena Jovanovich for the Newswomen’s Club of America based on my book Where the Action Was: Women War Correspondents in World War II & which I narrated was premiered this Fall at a panel discussion by 3 women war correspondents–Edie Lederer, who has been covering wars since 1972, when she became the first woman the Associated Press assigned full-time to cover the Vietnam War; Cami McCormick, a CBS News Correspondent, who served nine tours embedded with the U.S. troops in Iraq between 2003 and 2009; and Gina Chon, who was the Baghdad-based Iraq correspondent for the Wall Street Journal from 2007-2009. Two weeks ago, I attended the Front Page Awards dinner where Edie received the Lifetime Achievement Award & Gretchen Morgenson was awarded the Reporter of the Year Award for her coverage in The New York Times of Goldman Sachs group.
