May Furlong, Elsie Holloway, Lydia Campbell, Armine Gosling, and Georgina Stirling were remarkable women who pushed boundaries and made a difference at the turn of the twentieth century. World War One was pivotal in most of their lives. Susan Chalker Browne will highlight the obstacles these women overcame, the tragedies they endured, the incredible success they achieved as well as the ambition, intelligence, and grit they all shared. Five trailblazing women who pressed against the social norms of a century ago and helped change life and attitudes in Newfoundland and Labrador.
