This Week In '66

 


With Lynn Peril

This week I take a deep dive into the life of Marguerite "Maggie" Higgins, the first woman to win a Pulitzer Prize for international reporting, and who died This Week in '66. Higgins worked as war correspondent during WWII, Korea, and Vietnam. She was lusty and competitive, two traits that weren't considered "feminine" during her lifetime.
