Fran Lewine Memorial Interview

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The program was established in 2008 with the assistance of an anonymous donor to honor Fran Lewine, a beloved JAWS member and a trailblazer and mentor for women in journalism. As an AP White House reporter, she covered the administrations of six presidents from Eisenhower to Carter. She was a key figure in a historic AP lawsuit winning equal treatment for women. And at the age of 60 she began a new career, joining the then-fledgling CNN TV network, where she worked until her death. The Fran Lewine Interview honors one woman each year who is emblematic of Fran’s tradition of making a place for women in the national journalism world.
