There’s a great debate among literary scholars, authors, readers and the like about the limitations of storytelling. Of course, each story is unique to the author as they reveal tiny pieces of themselves in their work (but that’s another article altogether). The debate, however, is how many types of stories exist.
Everything in the world communicates in some form or another. Animals make their sounds, like a cat who meows, purrs or hisses; dogs bark, growl, snarl and whimper; and whales click, whistle and make pulsed calls.

It’s Women’s History Month in Canada and we’re celebrating by sharing fascinating content and information of previous and up-and-coming women who inspire the world!

Because October is Women’s History Month in Canada, we’re taking the time to discuss the strong women who have changed, and are still changing, the world. This also happens to include the fictional females who have inspired women and female-identifying individuals.
