This book tells the story of how 16 female Canadian journalists (8 Anglophones and 8 Francophones) founded the Canadian Women's Press Club in 1904. Kay deftly paints the portraits of these courageous and unique women, telling the story of this important and largely forgotten piece of Canadian history in a very lively and engaging manner. Definitely a recommended read for those interested in the history of Canadian journalism and of Canadian female historic figures.
