No Job for a Woman (2011)

Directed by Michèle Midori Fillion. A production of Hurry Up Sister Productions.

Despite official restrictions, women reporters broke new ground in World War II, pioneering the role of female war correspondent. No Job for a Woman follows three in depth: AP reporter Ruth Cowan, who risked her life in North Africa; magazine reporter Martha Gellhorn (then the wife of Ernest Hemingway), arrested for reporting from the D-Day invasion, who pursued her work across Europe; and Dickey Chapelle, an award-winning photographer whose career stretched from World War II to Vietnam.
