Wilmot Voss, Kimberly; Speere, Lance "Way past deadline: the women's fight to integrate the Milwaukee Press Club"


Wilmot Voss and Speere. "Way Past Deadline: The Women's Fight to Integrate the Milwaukee Press Club," Vol. 92, Issue 1. In this article, Kimberly Wilmot Voss and Lance Speere explore the fight by female journalists to enter the male-only Milwaukee Press Club in 1966. Voss and Speere examine how the women's protests to enter Milwaukee's Press Club became symbolic of the larger women's fight for equality occurring across the country in the 1960s. The article also describes some of Milwaukee's pioneering female journalists such as Mrs. H. L. Bridgeman, Laurie Van Dyke, and Aileen Ryan. (16 pages)
