In the waning years of the 19th century, women journalists across the United States stole into sewing factories to report on child labor, fainted in the streets to test public hospital treatment, and posed as lobbyists to reveal corrupt politicians. For publishers like Hearst and Pulitzer, these "girl stunt reporters" were good for business, although these trailblazers faced a vicious public backlash. As she traces the rise and fall of these brave journalists, Kim Todd shows how these ladies changed laws, helped launch a labor movement, championed women's rights, and redefined how people would tell stories ever after.
