I am 87 years old and recently moved into a retirement home in Ottawa. As I came to know some of the residents, I discovered that many of the women had amazing stories to tell about their achievements during their working years. One woman began teaching native children in the Yukon at the age of 18. Another woman won a prestigious award for her work in photogrammetry - the first woman ever to receive that award.
I have now determined to create a memoir of the unsung achievements of many working women whose accomplishments are hidden as not being as important as the achievements of men.
