Mary Katherine Goddard was a pioneer woman in print who is unfortunately not well known today, despite her accomplishments and her attempts to fight against the patriarchal society in which she lived. She was a smart and gifted printer who was underappreciate, disrespected, and ultimately pushed out by the controlling men in her industry. However, she had a deep love for print and writing, and against all the odds made a name for herself in the printing industry.
