Pownal Street Press is delighted to present the cover for our new book, Unhistoric Acts: Inside the Women’s Movement on Prince Edward Island, by Dianne Porter.
With cover art by renowned Canadian artist Beverley Hawskley, this cover is a tribute to the multifaceted lives of women.
Dianne Porter is a long time advocate for the women’s movement, and Unhistoric Acts is her memoir and collection of first hand accounts. The book takes the reader on a journey of progression in politics. As a political advisor in the 1980s, Porter brings us behind-the-scenes to the conversations that finally put women’s equality in Prince Edward Island on the table — women in the workforce, child care, and setting up basic minimum standards.
