Kathy Hacker, longtime journalist and Inquirer editor, dies at 71 – The Philadelphia Inquirer
As a writer, Ms. Hacker wrote about people, home, and life. She profiled Shirley Chisholm, Helen Gurley Brown, Gloria Steinem, and Marge the manicurist. Her writing was crisp, dramatic, and fun to read. Meticulous about everything, she recorded interviews so as not to miss a word that could make or break a point she was making.
