For the editors of LIFE—the first magazine to tell stories with photographs rather than text—the camera was not merely a reporter, but also a potent commentator with the power to frame news and events for a popular audience. For decades, Americans saw the world through the lens of the magazine's photographers. Yet between the 1930s and the early 1970s, LIFE kept only six women photographers on staff. LIFE's Women features more than 80 images showcasing the extraordinary work created by those six staff photographers: Margaret Bourke-White, Hansel Mieth, Marie Hansen, Martha Holmes, Nina Leen, and Lisa Larsen.
