Do You Know About Your Country’s Most Famous Women?

It appears Canadians have a lot to learn about the accomplishments of some of the country’s most famous women. A poll conducted by Ipsos on behalf of Historica Canada found most respondents couldn’t name the achievements of such famous women as Emily Carr and Lucy Maud Montgomery.

Only 37 per cent could identify Carr as a painter, while only 27 per cent knew of Montgomery’s authorship of such Canadian literary
classics as “Anne of Green Gables.”

When it comes to notable Indigenous women, recognition levels among respondents tumbled to between one and three per cent.
