Have you signed the petition? Let’s put Lotta on a commemorative stamp!
As part of Women’s History Month, Status of Women Canada has created an online gallery called “Women of Impact in Canada.”
It is “dedicated to women’s achievements, featuring profiles of courageous women who have made an impact in politics, the arts and sciences, and countless other fields.”
Dr Lotta is one of 100 women recognized by the Government of Canada and has been included in the online gallery as a Human Rights and humanitarian leader.
I hope this recognition will lead to many more Canadians, men and women, learning about her remarkable life story, and the lasting impact she has had on her adopted society to this day.
