"A Jury of Her Peers", a tense drama written in 1917, is a short story by Susan Glaspell, loosely based on the 1900 murder of John Hossack , which Glaspell covered while working as a journalist[ for the Des Moines Iowa Daily News. It is seen as an example of early feminist literature because two female characters are able to solve a mystery that the male characters cannot. They are aided by their knowledge of women's psychology. The story was adapted into an episode of the 1950s TV series Alfred Hitchcock Presents. It was also adapted into a 30-minute film by Sally Heckel in 1980. The film was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Live Action Short Film.
