Well-educated, Kit Coleman arrived in Toronto in 1884 and married, only to find herself abandoned with two children. Turning to house cleaning and story writing, she earned a job on the women's page of a local newspaper. Chafing against low wages and Victorian propriety, she started one of the first advice columns and wrote forcefully on social reform and women's issues. Determined to break through the “boy's club”, Kit finagled her way to the Spanish American War, becoming the world's first accredited woman foreign correspondent.
