January 14 is an important anniversary in Canada
It’s the birthday of Carrie Derick who became a leader for women’s rights and paving the way for women in education.
In 1912 when McGill University hired Derick as Professor of Comparative Morphology and Genetics, she became the first woman to be appointed full professor at a Canadian university. She would teach botany and genetics, and lead and mentor at McGill University until poor health forced her into retirement in 1929 when she became the first woman professor emeritus in Canada.
