Jane Grey Swisshelm's collaboration with Robert Riddle, the editor of the Pittsburgh Daily Commercial Journal was the first of her three opportunities to work in male-dominated environments that were in the process of shifting to include the presence of women. The intrusion of women such as Jane into male work spaces forced many men to accept changes in definitions of masculinity and femininity that were sometimes extremely unwelcome. This chapter discusses the adjustments in the work environment that became necessary when women transgressed gender boundaries and imposed themselves on male work spaces.

Keywords:   Robert Riddle, Pittsburgh Daily Commercial Journal, male work spaces, masculinity, femininity
