Kantor and Twohey are part of a long tradition of women journalists whose work has fueled feminist movements, particularly by shedding light on the obstacles, indignities, and violence women face in the workplace. The symbiosis between journalism and women's activism dates back to the late 19th and early 20th centuries, when a significant cohort of women entered the newspaper industry.
