A little more from International Women's Day

Following up on Monday's IWD post, Merna Forster draws our attention to, a website to promote women's history, and to the book 100 Canadian Heroines: Famous and Forgotten Faces.

Globe and Mail sez:
If you don't know who any of the following are—Isobel Gunn, Anna Leonowens (hint: Think Siam), Asayo Murakami, Mary Travers (not of Peter, Paul and Mary), Gudridur Thorbjardottir—then this is the book for you, or your daughter, or your son, for that matter.
Isobel, Anna, and Gudridur I'm good with, Mary and Asayo not so much.
