Thoughts on the Reading

I really enjoyed reading about Elizabeth Cochrane in “Girl Reporter Derring-Do”. Her story is incredibly interesting for a number of reasons. First, (of course) is her gender, I was very surprised to read that she was as a woman allowed to travel the world period, as well as without a chaperone. Her age surprised me as well, 25 is very young. Her approach to journalism was fascinating, she would conceal her identity as a way of working on detective journalism. Her journey around the world in 72 days via commercial transportation was an inspiring feat. When reading the short section from her chronicle I was struck by her tenacity. She told her editor that she would be more than willing to compete against a man.
