Washburn delivers paper on female war correspondents
Professor Emeritus Pat Washburn gave an invited paper ("Fighting for the Same Rights as Men: U.S. Women Correspondents in World War II") at a three-day conference in June at Scotland’s University of Edinburgh on "Women in Warfare: From Troy to the Trenches."
Twenty-two papers were presented by scholars from Scotland, Ireland, England, France, and the United States. Besides Washburn, who gave the only paper about the mass media, three other U.S. academics presented papers, including Steve Miner, the head of OU’s Contemporary History Institute.
