It has been a joy working on this project. As I read through these incredible womens’ profiles, I appreciated learning about their contributions to Canada and how they overcame their personal challenges. I am grateful to have been exposed to the 100 ABC women, some of whom I’ve met; some whose achievements I would not have known of had I not been part of this project; and some who are involved in the health and co-operative housing sectors that are part of my career. This is a must-have book as it bears messages of courage and hope. Congratulations to the 100 ABC women who through this medium, share their achievements and invaluable advice with women worldwide and inspire us all to follow our dreams. Thanks to Hon. Jean Augustine, Dauna Jones-Simmonds, and Dr. Denise O’Neil Green for this amazing publication. Dauna, thank you for getting me on board with the wonderful editing team!
