Female journalists who changed the world

If we could invite anyone to dinner it would be this list of women. From the young reporter who pretended to be insane on her first journalism assignment in order to expose the bad treatment of women in a mental asylum, to the woman who wrote about the heartbreaking loss of her newborn child and in turn broke the taboo on miscarriages, the journalism industry is filled with the most fascinating women. Not only were and are they pioneers in their field, they made their very own a dent in the world and for that we salute them.

Have we missed any inspiring female journalists or do you have a journalist you admire? Tell us in the comments below or on Twitter @StylistMagazine.
