From the archives: Women covering wartime

Covering everything and anything from the visit of the U.S. Secretary of State to the Nazi war-crime trials, Edwards earned her place with ‘the boys’. She would go on to cover the Korean and Vietnam wars for other publications and eventually published a book about female correspondents titled Women of the World: The Great Foreign Correspondents.

STARS AND STRIPES

By CATHARINE GIORDANO | STARS AND STRIPES Published: March 11, 2013

Women have been serving in the military alongside men for centuries and the offices of Stars and Stripes are no different in that aspect. As early as 1944, Stars and Stripes employed female reporters. Claire Kerlee reported for the London edition, penning the man-on-the-street column Vox Popoff. She interviewed GIs, their young British brides as well as the female members of the Women’s Army Corps (WAC).

Julia Edwards, who came to Stars and Stripes from The Washington Post in 1946, covered Vienna, Berlin, Munich and Nurnberg, documenting the changes in post-war Germany.
