Trailblazing feminist Doris Anderson dies

March 3rd, 2007     by Nicole Cohen     Comments

I woke up this morning to the sad news that Doris Anderson, who was the editor of Chatelaine mag in its heady feminist days, has died. Among her accomplishments included ensuring women’s politics were on the public agenda through magazine and newspaper articles, helping create the Royal Commission on the Status of Women, running for Parliament and advocating for proportional representation in federal elections (she was recently active with Equal Voice, a multi-partisan group pushing for more women to run at all levels of government).

Here’s an obituary in the Toronto Star, and an interview Shameless contributor Julia De Laurentiis-Johnson conducted with Anderson last year.
