Read the full story here. It's quick. 

Up until today I had never even heard of any woman covering any war, EVER. This meant more to me than I thought it would. Because when potential role models are erased from history you won't even have the capacity to think stuff like this is possible. 

Thank you for sharing only a sliver of what you experienced with the world, Catherine Leroy. 

Despite her many strong images, Ms. Leroy had remained relatively unknown, partly because she wasn’t a self-promoter, and partly because women photographers have often been excluded from the medium’s history, especially war photography.
