Description

Discover the untold stories of the fierce women who shaped Canada's legacy!

Celebrate the accomplishments and heroics of the overlooked heroes of Canadian history, with inspiring tales of tenwomen who were integral to our national legacy, and whose stories have not been told . . . until now!
