FREDERICTON (CNB) - The first issue of Celebrate Women, a publication showcasing the accomplishments of New Brunswick women, was recently released by Health Minister Mary Schryer, who is also minister responsible for the status of women.
"I am pleased to present this inaugural publication," said Schryer. "I strongly believe it is important to honour New Brunswick women who have made a significant difference in the lives of others, and in their communities."
The women profiled have influenced the lives of those around them by taking on leadership roles, challenging opposition and sharing their beliefs.
"Their accomplishments speak for themselves, and we are proud to provide a platform from which their achievements can be displayed," said Schryer
