Wednesday at Knox: Nov 15 Gail Cuthbert Brandt:  Achievers and Deceivers: Some Notable and  Fascinating Women from Canada’s Past Learn about several Canadian women of different racial backgrounds, regions and eras and the mark they made on their local communities, our nation, and in some cases, the world. If you think Canadian history is boring, the “herstory” of these individual women – some upstanding and famous, others unscrupulous and notorious – will hopefully change your mind!  Dr. Cuthbert Brandt is a former principal and now Professor Emerita of Renison University College, University of Waterloo.  She is a specialist in Canadian social and women’s history, and is co-author if “Canadian Women – a history”.  She was on the Advisory Committee for the current exhibit at the Waterloo Region Museum called “Trailblazing – Women in Canada since 1867”.
