Reading and Remembrance 2011: Peacekeeping and Peacemaking

This one's for the girls

Readingandremembrance.ca website clusters materials to celebrate Women's History Month

PICKERING, ON, Sept. 27, 2011 /CNW/ - Reading and Remembrance 2011 has free, downloadable materials that feature Canada as a peacekeeping and peacemaking nation from 1945 to the present. "This one's for the girls" is the title of the lesson specifically on women: UN Special Representative to Burundi, Carolyn McAskie, an all-female UN police unit in Liberia, Canadians teaching female police officers in Ghana.

The 2011 lessons include Canadian nurses Lyle Creelman and Beatrice Roberts with the United Nations in post-WWII Europe, Carol Isfeld who started the Izzy Doll movement to commemorate her son's death in the Balkans (and all the knitters who have supported her), Ontario journalist Hamida Ghafour writing about Afghanistan and Corporal Shangary Satgunanathan who served there.

The rich fare of 2011 materials joins the archived features on women who were entertainers, nurses, Silver Cross Mothers and much else during and after WWII. A snapshot Minutes page provides an overview for quick selection. Women's History month celebrations are just a click away!

Ontario Power Generation, the founding and supporting partner for this not-for-profit provincial project received the President's Award from the Ontario Historical Society in 2011.

This year's 10 lessons and 20 Minutes for Remembrance Day and Veterans' Week are already available at www.readingandremembrance.ca
