She worked for the National Council for Prevention of War as an editor and the America First Committee as head of research in the 1930s, and as a reporter for The Washington Daily News in the 1940s. From 1949 to 1960, she worked for the United States Department of State. In 1958, Benedict and her husband, Bertram Benedict, traveled to South Asia, particularly India, on behalf of the United States Information Agency, where she gave speeches on college campuses.
