A local book to honour local feminists.

Hello Joan,
This year marks the 40th Anniversary of the Northwestern Ontario Women's Centre. On October 18th, we will be holding an event to celebrate 40 years of fabulous feminism, and you are all invited.  Stay tuned for more information about our Localicious Just Desserts Party by visiting our newly revamped website at www.nwowomenscentre.org.
 
In order to mark the milestone and acknowledge the work of so many Northwestern Ontario women over the years in a less caloric way, we are also putting together a book called Forty Fabulous Feminists. This compendium of short biographies will profile the contribution of (at least) 40 NWO women to the feminist movement over the last 40 years.
 
If you would like to nominate someone or several someones (young or old, living or no longer marching) to be interviewed for this volume, please send us their names, contact info if you have it, and why you think they should be included, ASAP.  We are using our own funds to produce this volume, so If you would like to help finance this project, donations would be greatly appreciated.  We estimate it will cost approximately $5000 to assemble, publish and print the book.  Charitable receipts are available - please contact our Office Manager, Lori Gilbert (nowcadmin@tbaytel.net) if  you would like to contribute to the production of this book.
 
Thank you for helping us celebrate Forty Fabulous Years of Feminism!
Stay fabulous,
Gwen O'Reilly
Northwestern Ontario Women's Centre
