Description

Born into privilege but expected to use her advantages for the good of others, Senator Nancy Ruth has led an uncommon, unconventional life. From her religious ministry to rewriting Canada's national anthem to make it gender-neutral, this outspoken, complicated woman has put her stamp on Canada's public life. Her generous feminist philanthropy allowed numerous women's organizations to flourish, and her talents for friendship and for controversy meant the work was serious but never dull. Like Nancy herself, this book is rich in surprises and contradictions about a remarkable woman who used her privilege to support social change and the battle to better women’s lives in Canada.
