Carrie Derick, militant feminist

Nice profile of Carrie Derick, who campaigned for the rights of women to vote and have access to contraception, a century ago.

We have a street named after her, but it’s an empty road paralleling autoroute 10, between Point St Charles and the river, and not one that most of us will ever have walked on. They could’ve found something better.

Although I suppose it may not always be empty.
