Shub worked as a media producer in television programming in the Boston area before becoming a full-time freelance photojournalist in the 1980s. Shub's photographs appeared feminist newspapers, gay and lesbian newspapers, and cities' weeklies. Shub attended social protests from the early 1970s through 2018 and many of her photographs feature protest signs. Her photographs of protest signs have appeared in The New Yorker, the National Library of Medicine, Our Bodies Ourselves, and Frontiers: A Journal of Women Studies.
