about

Ambition, diversity, strength: few groups better represent the potential of Canada than women. Canada 150 Women profiles 150 of the country's most inspiring, groundbreaking and powerful female role models, providing insight into their achievements-and a challenge for all to better support women.

From politicians to spacewalkers, entrepreneurs to scientists, Canada 150 Women offers insight into the work and life journey of women such as Deepa Metha, Elizabeth May, Heather Payne, Julie Payette, Kim Campbell, Lisa Charleyboy, Michele Landsberg, Jeanne Beker, and Hedy Fry. Candidly sharing personal and professional moments of struggle-and success-interviewees also discuss how feminism has changed in their lifetimes, suggest advice to women embarking on their careers, and set forth their bold visions for Canada.

Inspiring and digestible, eye opening and supportive, the interviews demonstrate the remarkable abilities of women to forge change for themselves and their country, even in spite of long-held prejudice. A must-read title for anyone thinking of their place during a crucial moment in history, Canada 150 Women asks for recognition and support of women in all industries but-above all-offers empowerment to shape one's life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stories highlighting women's contributions to the fabric of Canada It's about time someone captured the incredible stories of Canadian women who have contributed to the fabric of Canada as spacewalkers, CEO's, explorers, founders, politicians and more. It's a beautifully made book and a welcome addition to my coffee table. #Canada150Women
