How Well Do You Know Famous Canadian Women?

It appears we have a lot to learn about the many accomplishments of some of Canada’s most famous women. A poll conducted by Ipsos on behalf of Historica Canada found most respondents couldn’t name the achievements of such famous women as Emily Carr and Lucy Maud Montgomery. Only 37 percent could identify Carr as a painter, while only 27 percent knew Montgomery was the author of such Canadian literary classics as “Anne of Green Gables.” When it comes to notable Indigenous women, recognition levels were between three and one percent.

The survey also explored Canadian responses to the “Metoo” movement.  It found roughly half those questioned feel Canadians are making women feel safe from sexual harassment at large and in society at large. (National Post, The Canadian Press)
