Most literature about type design and typefaces are mainly about the men who are widely recognized in this type of work. While the accomplishments of male type designers clearly need to be celebrated, as they have contributed much to typography and its history, it's only reasonable that women's roles be recognized as well. The influence of women in type design and typography is widely unseen in the modern world. The research completed in this paper serves to bring to light many forgotten women in this field and a general synopsis of some of their individual impacts. It also aims to discuss the influence and experience of women in the typographic field both in history and present day.
