About this title


As Albertans celebrate the Centenary, let's light a candle for the women who contributed to the quality of life in this province. Many have remained invisible, others are acknowledged by their families and partners, some are well known. This book showcases girls and women who represent a great range of geographic, demographic, and intellectual interests. The purpose of the collection is to present some aspects of past, present, and future educational opportunities by highlighting particular successes and challenges. The edition is organized into four sections: personal, professional, political and public. – Strong believers in the rights of women, these nation builders, the Famous 5, were the five Alberta women who petitioned the Government of Canada to have women defined as 'persons' under the British North America Act. On October 18, 1929, they succeeded. Inspired by these pioneers, contributors to this book maintain the tradition of working for women's rights and the development of individual talent in girls and women.
