It’s time women journos’ are heard. That’s why we’re amplifying the voices of our women #journoheroes w/ the @IWMF this month! Susan Stamberg, Nina Totenberg & Linda Wertheimer & the late Cokie Roberts are our heroes because they blazed trails to bring women’s voices to the news.
Today on Best of the NBF: Cokie Roberts discusses "Capital Dames: The Civil War and the Women of Washington, 1848-1868" at the 2015 Library of Congress National Book Festival. Watch the full video here:

Cokie Roberts was a trailblazer who transformed the role of women in the newsroom & our history books as she told the stories of the unsung women who built our nation. Her warmth, wit and wisdom will be deeply missed by all.
The world will be a lesser place without my darling friend, Cokie Roberts, who died early this morning. I said good-bye last night. Told her I'd see her on the other side some day, where I know she will still be a star.
Dear young aspiring journalists, the reason for the outpouring of sadness and love for Cokie Roberts isn’t just b/c she was smart and really good at what she did. Her humanity set her apart. She didn’t sacrifice it for her job.
I wonder how many people were hurt because everyone knew and did nothing about it? Cokie Roberts: Oh, We All Knew To Avoid Getting in An Elevator With Rep. Conyers:
