Yunghi Kim has been a photojournalist since 1984.
She was bothered by the revisionist narrative that was circulating in photojournalism for the last few years. In response to several inaccurate portrayals of past women in photojournalism, Yunghi expressed her opinion in a Facebook post mentioning several women in photojournalism. In turn, the photojournalism community came forward on Facebook offering many, many more women photojournalists and editors from their collective memory. Thus, “The List” was born! The List flourished because of the overwhelmingly positive response generated by this story, it struck a chord in the industry.
