DAWN Ontario would like to gratefully acknowledge the support of the following Women:

First and foremost, our heartfelt thanks and appreciation to the founding mothers of the DisAbled Women Network; in particular these incredible Women:

  • Joan Meister BC
  • Jillian Riddington BC
  • Irene Feika AB
  • Pat Danforth SK
  • Cathy Moore SK
  • Paula Kierstead MB
  • Elizabeth Semkiw MB
  • Donna Hicks ON
  • Joanne Doucette ON
  • Pat Israel ON
  • Maria Barile QC
  • Marie Blanche Remillard QC
  • Diane Leeming QC
  • Marie St-Germaine NB
  • Margaret Hiltz NS
  • Susan Buchanan PEI
  • Fran Dinn NF
  • Barbara Smith NWT

Secondly, DAWN Ontario's Acting Chair, Barbara Anello, a member of the Board since October 1998. We stopped counting when Barbara hit the 1,000 volunteer hour mark co-ordinating projects, attending consultations, responding to Women with disAbilities, and continually redesigning, maintaining, and promoting this website for DAWN Ontario to benefit Women with disAbilities.

Our added thanks to Barbara for her commitment to building an online community for Women with disAbilities and initiating the DAWN Ontario discussion list with 248 members currently. One of our favourite "Barbara" quotes is this:

"Whatever adversity life has challenged me with has helped define who I am and as such, I am stronger for it."

We also wish to acknowledge Tracy Odell for developing the vision statement adopted by the DAWN Ontario Board of Directors.  Tracy is a woman who was leagues ahead of the times and as such, she has been an inspiring role model to other Women with disAbilities!  

The DAWN Ontario Board will remain forever indebted to the Visonary Women noted above for their invaluable contributions both to the organization and to the movement of Women with disAbilities. It is through the efforts of such dedicated individuals that the concerns relevant to Women with disabilities have come to the forefront.
