National Press Club Reflects on Progress and Work Ahead 50 Years After Accepting First Female Members

From the National Press Club:

Prominent female journalists said there has been progress in the treatment of women in the industry but more work lies ahead, during a celebration of the 50th anniversary of the National Press Club admitting female members.

The Club voted to admit women members for the first time in 1971, having previously only allowed them to cover events and luncheons from the ballroom balcony.
