"A New Monument Will Celebrate Nellie Bly’s Undercover Reporting, Right Where It Happened" Discussion Thread
Elizabeth Mary Jane Seaman née Cochran / Nellie Bly, a pioneer of immersionism, did an outstanding job reporting on deplorable conditions at the Women’s Lunatic Asylum in New York city. I’m very pleased to learn a monument is being created in her honor! It’s a pity, however, that your report lapsed into racism via a political-correctness tangent having nothing to do with Bly herself nor the patients and personnel present at that time.
