The current political reality has awakened in many women the urgent determination to be involved — but the journey from the sidelines to political power is seldom a straight path.
Enter Women on the Ballot, an essential roadmap designed to encourage, equip, and empower women to step up and run for political office. This is a book about women who saw things as they were, knew change was needed, and entered into Canadian politics.
Gleaned from more than 100 hours of interviews, Women on the Ballot offers compelling stories, insights, and advice from more than 90 Canadian women with diverse backgrounds across all levels of politics and party lines.
The Woman in this Poem$22.95
Edited by acclaimed poet and author Georgia Heard, who became acutely aware of the beauty and power of poetry when working on an anthology of poems to comfort children after September 11th, The Woman in this Poem features the work of both renowned and lesser-known female poets from the past 150 years.
Organized into five thematic sections centered on the topics of Love, Motherhood, Work, Family and Friends, and Balance, this book not only offers wisdom, comfort, reckoning, and redemption to readers of any age or gender, but it also reminds us of how pleasurable and enriching it can be to lose ourselves in the power of well-crafted words.
