Truth be Told contains 114 inspirational personal stories by women in the law, with a focus on Albertan female lawyers and members of the judiciary. In their contributions to the book:
- Anne shared her experiences of growing up in the Sixties, as the feminist movement began and as the fight for civil rights took to the streets.
- Rose wrote on overcoming childhood poverty and related childhood challenges while living in various institutions as an abandoned child from age six.
Truth be Told is a non-profit endeavour. Any book sale proceeds remaining after production expenses are paid will be maintained by Alberta Civil Trial Lawyers Association for future Women’s Legal Forum events.
