Women Celebrate 100 Years
2016 marks 100 years of voting rights for women, thanks in part to the brave work of women like Nellie McClung. As a result of this historic anniversary, we will be showcasing a strong woman in Canadian history each month.
Franklin has helped develop science policy through the Science Council of Canada and the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada. She worked on gathering and analysing data on the strontium-90 accumulation in the teeth of children in Canada as a result of fallout from tests of nuclear weapons; the dating of copper, bronze, metal and ceramic artifacts of prehistoric cultures in Canada and elsewhere; and she has tried to educate society and scientists to the impact of science and technology on human survival and quality of life. She is a tireless advocate for Science for Peace.
Her work has received worldwide recognition and brought her many honours. These include a Doctor of Science from Queen's (1985) and a Doctor of Humane Letters from Mount Saint Vincent (1985), and in 1992 she was made a Companion of the Order of Canada. In 1984 Franklin became the first woman to be named a University Professor at U of T.
