Where are the women I always asked my self that question whenever I read history books I love history but even as a child I wanted to learn about the lives of women As an adult I began to do some research on my own and discovered it was difficult to find information about womens lives However I asked my self many times how could I have studied Canadian history for so many years and not have heard these womens stories I wondered Therefore today I did my research on womens opportunities and I am going to talk about Elizabeth Muriel Gregory MacGill I am not a hero I was lucky I got a good education So my mother was a judge so what I did not think it was any more remarkable for a woman being a judge than it was for me to be an engineer Elizabeth Muriel Gregory MacGill known as Elsie said In fact Elizabeth MacGill is a hero she is a purposeful citizen who had done a lot to help Canadian women and other women in the world She was the first woman in Canada to earn a degree in electrical engineering she became the first woman in North America to hold a degree in aeronautical engineering she was the first woman to design and witness an airplane based on her design and she was a strong advocate for womens rights Elsie was born in Vancouver in 1905 Her mother was Helen Gregory MacGill a newspaper reporter and the first woman judge in British Columbia Helen worked to change legislation to improve the lives of women and children in Canada and she was a strong role model for her daughter Elsies father was James Henry MacGill a well-known lawyer Therefore all this facts influenced Elsie to become an engineer The word first appears often in an account of Elsie MacGills career
