Elizabeth Jane Cochran, better known as Nellie Bly, was an American journalist and writer. She was noted, among other things, for being the first woman reporter in investigative journalism.

Her best-known work is Ten Days in a Mad-House, which was written after a Pulitzer Agency assignment on a psychiatric asylum. Nellie went into the asylum to experience the brutal conditions of the patients and to tell the story first-hand. Her text prompted an investigation and an increase in the budget for the care of the mentally ill.

He was also notable for setting out to circumnavigate the world in less than 80 days, emulating Verne's novel. She was teased that it was impossible as women tended to carry a lot of luggage, to which she surprised by carrying only a handbag. She accomplished her feat in just 72 days and set a new world record.
