Rebel Women of the West Coast: Their Triumphs, Tragedies and Lasting Legacies

Rebel Women of the West Coast focuses on nine women and their associates who significantly impacted their communities in British Columbia, Washington and Oregon. Beginning with settlers and missionaries who followed the overland route to the west and including suffragettes, doctors, scientists (Dixy Lee Ray), politicians (Grace McCarthy and Dixy Lee Ray), writers, labour activists and a present-day entertainer (Sarah McLachlan), this disparate group of women are all united by the common theme of modifying our society. The selected subjects are nonconformist women who made their own way through life, with varying degrees of outward success, but who all made things a little easier for those who followed.
