woman in typedesign

Fabiouser's picture

I like to make a research about gender design.

Like the man that engrave the first type at 6pt, there are some moment in history pointing the first woman to make a typeface?

If you know some sources that could help me to find more topics in this area, share them where.

Thanks a lot

Here's an article that critiques the lack of women in the design industry and gives a historical evaluation of why this is.

Hagmann, S. (2005). ‘Non-existent design: women and the creation of type’ Visual
Communication, 4(2), pp. 186-194.
