Abstract: Inez Callaway Robb, in her 50-year career as a reporter, society editor, WWII correspondent, and columnist, wrote more than 10,000 articles, syndicated to about 150 newspapers. By the 1950s, Inez Robb was a household name, and Robb was regularly billed as one of the world’s top newspaper women. Yet, few people know her name today, and scholars largely have overlooked Robb’s contributions to journalism. This biographical essay uncovers Robb’s life and writings, while considering the apparent contradiction of her work, corresponding from more than 40 countries around the world, while advocating traditional gender roles and opposing an Equal Rights Amendment.
