It is time for us, as human beings, to come together and speak about the struggles woman have faced in their collective herstory. Each generations must learn the stories of the ones who shoulders we stand on. The ones who gave their time and even their life to give us the world we live in today. One of those women is Judy Rebick. She has also written a book that gives you a glimpse into that rich herstory of the struggle. The fight for woman’s rights is never over!

Ten Thousand Roses is a rich tapestry of stories told by over a hundred feminists from across Canada who organized, discussed, protested and struggled for change.

Some of the issues were legalized abortion, resistance to male violence, pay equity and employment equity,  anti-racism, action against poverty, rights for Aboriginal women and child care: these are the issues that rallied Canadian women to activism from the 1960s through the 1990s, the second wave of feminism. Judy Rebick, feminist activist, weaves together an insightful and stirring oral history full of four decades of struggle, defeat and triumph. The book also offers honest and insightful discussions of the differences that simultaneously divided and strengthened the women's movement in its efforts to remake a male-dominated culture. These stories define the Canadian women's movement as one of the most successful on the planet and open a treasure chest of knowledge for anyone wanting to make a better world.
