Product description

Review

These are powerful stories of strong women who have helped to build our country, many who are truly unsung heroines. An inspirational read. (Canada.com (online) 2011-12-26)

This is an important book that helps to, finally, give credit where it is due. And yes, we expect to see volume three in the Heroines series. (The Victoria Times Colonist)

Merna Forster knows the intimate details of more than 200 famous and not-so-famous Canadian women. (Peninsula News Review)

Looks to become a bestseller. (Victoria News)

Forster's book blows the dust off conventional accounts of Canadian history, rendering our heritage suddenly colourful and utterly human. (Adrienne Dyer Boulevard Magazine)

If youre looking for inspiration this book is full of it. (Sudbury Star 2012-01-21)

The meticulously researched short biographies are quick and easy to read, fresh and informative. What a shame we have never heard of most of these women: their lives and achievements, usually overcoming tremendous barriers, are so inspiring! (Peninsula Newcomers Newsletter 2012-01-01)

About 90 of the women were new to me, and I am glad to have met them...a lot of fascinating material here. (The Chronicle-Journal 2012-01-29)

...full of feisty women overcoming poverty and racial and gender-based prejudice to accomplish something in life. (Dance International 2012-03-01)

From the Cariboo Gold rush to the country's oldest Chinatown, Canadian history is full of amazing women. Just ask Merna Forster." (Goldstream News Gazette 2012-01-01)

Review

Merna Forster has made tremendous contributions to bringing Canadian history alive through her innovative public awareness initiatives that promote a better understanding of the brilliance, ingenuity, energy and creative power of Canadian women. The recipient of numerous awards, she has worked with national parks and national historic sites across Canada in the areas of public education programs, outreach initiatives and visitor services. She is also well known for her writing, media commentary and presentations at national and international conferences. Her life work has culminated in a trio of invaluable resources: the heroines.ca website, created in 2004, and two best-selling books, 100 Canadian Heroines: Famous and Forgotten Faces and 100 More Canadian Heroines: Famous and Forgotten Faces. She currently works at the University of Victoria, where she is executive director of the Great Unsolved Mysteries in Canadian History Project, which helps energize the teaching of Canadian history. (upon receiving the Alumni Honour Award from the University of Alberta)
