Teenage Girls Who Made a Difference
This is a cool list of "teenage girls who made a difference" that George Stroumboulopoulos posted on his show last week.
There were 5 girls named:
1. Shannen Koostachin
2. Anne Frank
3. Mary Shelley
4. Buffy the Vampire Slayer (!)
5. Joan of Arc
Second Story Press published Shannen's story last year in Shannen and the Dream for a School. Shannen lived in Attawapiskat and brought national and international attention to the horrible conditions in which they were being educated. Tragically Shannen was killed in a car crash in 2010 and did not live to see the impact she has made in bringing this story to the attention of the Canadian government.
