Moreover, the female experience and its creative processes held mystic implications — both transcendental and self-destructive vulnerability. She became and established author with such titles as A romance of Toronto (Toronto 1888); Lion, the mastiff (Toronto 1895) and Three wedding rings (Toronto n.d.) She could perhaps be considered a pioneer of early multi media writing as she apparently worked or at least published for the Canadian Department of Agriculture in 1898 when she prepared under her own name a lantern slide lecture on teaching kindness to animals called: Dick Niven and his Nobby.

Women’s poetry in the twentieth century was an integral part of Yiddish literary creativity in all of its major centers: Kiev (Shifre Kholodenko); Warsaw (where Kadya Molodowsky and Rajzel Zychlinski, among others, produced their works); Lodz (Miriam Ulinover, Rikudah Potash ); Lvov ( Dvoyre Fogel ); Montreal ( Ida Maze, Rakhl Korn, Chava Rosenfarb ); Los Angeles (where Malka Heifetz Tussman and Esther Shumiatcher resided for many years); and Buenos Aires (Sore Birnboym) http://gec.org.ru/?books/who-put-the-men-in-menopause-hilarious-poems-for-older-women.
