Summary/Review: "Nancy Ruth’s unique journey as a philanthropist, feminist politician, and activist. Born into privilege but expected to use her advantages for the good of others, Senator Nancy Ruth has led an uncommon, unconventional life. From her religious ministry to rewriting Canada's national anthem to make it gender-neutral, this outspoken, complicated woman has put her stamp on Canada's public life. Nancy Ruth’s generous feminist philanthropy has allowed numerous women's organizations to flourish, and her talents for friendship and for controversy meant the work was serious but never dull. Like Nancy herself, this book is rich in the surprises and contradictions of a remarkable woman who used her privilege to support social change and the battle to better women’s lives in Canada. KEYWORDS: Canadian Senate, Canadian History, Jackman Family, Feminism"--
