Superman’s Girl Friend Lois Lane #121 (April 1972)
Written by Cary Bates, art by Werner Roth and Vince Colletta

In this first issue of Lois Lane’s brief feminist revolution, Lois quit her job at the Daily Planet to become a freelance reporter. She was no longer interested in doing what other people told her to do; Lois was ready to be her own woman, and write the stories that she was passionate about. Perry White and Jimmy Olsen were flummoxed, but Lois was adamant. It was the dawn of a new era for Lois Lane, that lasted until editor Dorothy Woolfolk got fired seven issues later.
