would be following."in 1961 dorothy butler gilliam became the first black female reporter for the washington post. at the time the paper was male dominated and-- like the nation as a whole--mostly segregated.gilliam recalled facing unexpected challenges while trying to do her job." because of these outside factors that i had no control over such as the fact that these white cab drivers wouldn't pick up a black woman" despite obstacles, gilliam was driven to succeed.she relied on her skills.. such as short- hand.. to finish assignments on-time.she believed missing deadline would only make it harder for any women or minorities who followed. "it would be very easy for editors
