The Radio Edition - August 30, 2015
Join me tonight at 7 pm on 1010.5 UMFM for West End Dumplings - The Radio Edition, the show about Manitoba history.
Joining me in studio is Penni Mitchell. She's the long-time managing editor of herizons, the national magazine of women’s news and feminist views, published right here in in Winnipeg. Their summer edition is a special history issue profiling 50 women who changed Canada. We'll talk about some of these women.
Mitchell also has a new book, About Canada: Women's Rights that profiles many women who changed Canada through their efforts to end discrimination and to promote social justice from the 1600s to the turn of the last century.
Later, I will tell you about some events that will be commemorated in the week ahead in Manitoba history and let you know about some upcoming tours !
Music by Rita MacNeil, Tanya Tagak and Buffy Sainte-Marie.
