First Daily Newspaper Published by a Woman

Elizabeth Mallet was said to be the first person to publish a daily newspaper. In March 1702, Miss Mallet established and published the Daily Courant in London, England.

She founded the newspaper for the purpose of doing greater justice for women through the elimination of impertinences in the other newspapers of the time.
