The lives of modern-day Canadians are full of examples of the accomplishments that women have made throughout history. This October during Women’s History Month, we honour women – in Canadian history and in our family trees – and the contributions they have made to the growth of our nation.
It seems surreal to me that women have only legally been considered “persons” in Canada for a little over 80 years. Looking back at my own family tree, I’m amazed by the accomplishments of my female ancestors, regardless of the challenges and risks they faced.
