Eleanor Roosevelt, Gelda Meir and Agnes Martin—four women
whose lives span the two world wars (1867 to the present)—two
artists and two political activists. Excerpts from their autobiographical
writings are read by Jean Burke, Rae Davis and Irene Frolic—three
women living in Toronto with different backgrounds and different
connections to the lives of which they are speaking.
