Constance Barnicoat: A cool head and a sharp pen
Paperback | English
Constance Barnicoat (1872-1922) was sassy, strong, opinionated, brave, meticulous, and very intelligent. She should be celebrated as a leading journalist of her time, but she is unknown to most people.
While she was born and brought up in New Zealand, Constance Barnicoat wrote for publications around the world, having learned her craft in London from the pioneer of modern journalism, W. T. Stead.
Annabel Schuler came across Constance’s story five years ago and wrote a brief article about her achievements for a historical journal. People wanted to know more, so she dug deeper into Constance’s writing, her climbing, her grit in a man’s world, and her unflagging work ethic.
