a bite-sized podcast about Newfoundland

Episode 6 – Dorothy Wyatt

Dorothy Wyatt was the first female councillor and first female mayor of St. John’s. She’s one of only two female mayors in the 115 year history of the city council. She actually had a lot of “firsts” in her life. I read that she rejected the label “pioneer”, but I think that’s exactly what she was. She blazed the trail for women in so many ways.

Thanks again to Dorothy’s daughter Lorelei for contributing!

Unfortunately I wasn’t able to find a lot of photos or video of Dorothy online.
