Dr. Ophira Ginsburg, MSc’92, and Mayo Moran, LLB’90, will be honoured at the YWCA Toronto Women of Distinction Awards 2013, a ceremony recognizing the difference they and others make in the lives of women and girls.
Ginsburg is a physician, scientist and advocate for women’s right to medical care. Her research focuses on differences between populations in the risk and prospects of breast cancer. Moran, Dean of the University of Toronto’s Faculty of Law, is noted for her work on claims concerning historic injustices, including the Chinese Canadian Head Tax, and her involvement in equality cases dealing with women’s issues.
The Women of Distinction Awards will be presented on May 2 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.
