Happy Birthday Muriel!

Today is the 100th birthday of Muriel Duckworth, who has been active in struggles for social change in Canada since the 1920s. She is one of the people that I interviewed as part of my social movement history project, and I actually did a fair bit of work towards producing a chapter for a previous incarnation of my book-in-progress based on that interview, though unfortunately it is not a part of the current version of the book. Thanks to the editors at Rabble for noting this important date, and here is an article about Muriel that Rabble published in 2004.
