Kit Coleman

Kit Coleman's life and career.  She was the first female war correspondent.




What was the most interesting thing you learned about your topic?

I found it interesting that Kit was very determined to go to war and that she didn't realize how mentally shaken she was when she came back.

What important lessons have you learned that you want to share with other Canadians?

Kit came to Canada with nothing. She was very determined to get what she wanted. It shows that women can do anything.

How would you compare your life today to the lives of those studied in your project?

It was very surprising that women then weren't working and today it is very normal for a woman to be working.
