At the turn of the 20th century, investigative journalism into the activities and lives of civil servants, at times called “muckraking”, was conducted, in part, by several brave and progressive women. Today, investigative journalism continues to be a catalyst for change. Our panelists will explore how investigative journalism today leads to civil service and other political reform, and bring the discussion full circle to the early female muckraking journalists of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. What role does investigative journalism play in speaking truth to power? How has this investigative journalism changed over the last century? What is the experience of women working in this field?

In this panel, Pulitzer Prize winning journalist, former Boston Globe columnist, and professor of journalism at Brandeis University, Eileen McNamara, discusses these and other questions with: Jenn Ableson, Boston Globe Spotlight Reporter; Beth Daley, Senior Investigative Reporter and Senior Trainer at The Eye and the New England Center for Investigative Reporting, and Joan Vennochi, Boston Globe Op-Ed Columnist.
