I’m a journalist, and so, by law, I am required to feature Nellie Bly as part of my Women’s History Month series. Bly is a personal role model of mine—she’s a journalistic trailblazer who exposed the rampant abuse of contemporary mental asylums and raced around the world in eighty days. Her life is both fascinating and inspiring, and her work is truly ground-breaking. Read about her iconic “Ten Days at the Mad-House” here.
Thank you, Nellie Bly!
