Day Four: Women's Page History in 7 Objects
Wine glasses represent the women's page for day four. While these journalists took on hard news topics like child abuse, pay inequity and discrimination, they also liked to have fun. In this oral history, longtime women's page editor Marjorie Paxson spoke about parties at the home of the St. Pete Times' food editor Ruth Gray.
