Thanks John Fioravanti for including Jeanne Mathilde Sauvé in your recent Believe It or Not series. She was the first woman Canadian history to take the position of Governor General, in addition to being the first female Speaker of the House the Commons (1980), and being an advocate for peace. Please follow John’s informative blog while you are over there.
Great share …a great history of a strong woman..an example of struggle and hard work…
To much women’s history we don’t know. Thanks for sharing this!
Exactly, Pamela! Let’s keep sharing about women we admire :)
Okay! I write female characters who have faults (don’t we all?), but in the end, readers find reason to admire my characters (I certainly hope…) and the decisions they make, the actions they take. Happy New Year, Christy. xo
Thanks for sharing this post, Christy!
So welcome! You deserve all the recognition for these well-researched posts, John :)
That is certainly an inspiring woman, Christy. TGIF hugs!
I especially love the part on Jeanne Mathilde Sauvé!!!! Went over, liked and commented.
It’s very wonderful that you reblogged this, Christy!
Aw, it’s my pleasure to spotlight women and from great writers like John it’s not hard to do so! <3
It’s always nice to hear about a strong female getting recognition for her achievements!
Wow!!! What a strong, courageous and inspirational woman Jeanne was. Such an interesting life she seemed so driven. Thank you John and Christy for sharing xoxoxox
