Rate this:
Trailblazerscomprises the stories of thirty-six women who broke the mould; all are inspiring individualists who demanded the right to be equal participants in society. Often they succeeded by determination alone, smashing the stereotypes that defined what women could-or should-do. From Monique Bégin, the first woman to be elected a Quebec Member of Parliament, to Justine Blainey who won the right to play hockey with her male peers, to Helen Lucas, a painter who overcame the restrictions of an immigrant background to create her inspirational and joyous art, each tells--in her own voice--the unique story of how she blazed a trail, knowingly or not, and became part of the force that created Canadian society as we know it.
