Stories about Yong Volz

Giving women journalists a voice

Yong Volz’s oral history website, Herstory, which launched in April 2015, shares women’s voices, experiences and perspectives about their professional careers, achievements and associational life as they fought for gender equality in the newsroom.

Volz partnered with the Journalism and Women Symposium (JAWS) organization to select women for the project. All women featured in the interviews are members of JAWS. Volz plans to use information gathered from the oral history interviews, along with additional archival materials, for a book.
