Historian looking for English-speaking women

Editor's Update: Thanks for the response! This project is no longer in need of responses.   

 

Do you know any Quebec City women who should be celebrated?

Empreintes d’elles is an exciting new YWCA project being carried out as part of the city’s 400th anniversary celebrations. It is a series of thematic cocktails that will pay tribute to women’s contributions to the past, present, and future development of Quebec City.

Each encounter will highlight different women with outstanding personalities. The last event will pay homage to 400 Quebec City women who stand out for their contributions to the fields of law, politics, health, business, arts and culture, sports, science and education. As member of the historians’ advisory committee for this series, historian Lorraine O’Donnell is helping to come up with names of women to suggest for the group of 400. In order to make sure that English-speaking women are well represented in this group, she needs the help of QCT readers! Do you have suggestions of women to include? If so, please drop her a line at lorraine_odon[email protected] , indicating “400 women” in the subject line.
