Amazing Atlantic Canadian Women - Stephanie Domet
You’ve likely heard of some of the most famous women from Atlantic Canada – women like activist Viola Desmond, painter Maud Lewis, and singer-songwriter Anne Murray. But this book celebrates some amazing women you may not have heard of, like pioneering radio producer Betty Riley, lawyer Linda Lee Oland, or engineer Mona El-Tahan.
With profiles of over 70 amazing women past and present from Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, and Newfoundland and Labrador, authors Stephanie Domet and Penelope Jackson share incredible stories of women who have overcome adversity, excelled in STEM fields, established successful creative careers, and bravely led change. Featuring informative sidebars, an index, and 20 original colour illustrations from artist James Bentley.
