As a lawyer, community builder and philanthropist, Shirley Greenberg strives to empower women to improve their lives and to further equality in society. Co-founder of Ottawa's first all-female law practice, she fought to increase women's equality rights in employment law and family law. Her inspiring energy and commitment were instrumental in the creation of the Ottawa Women's Centre, from which arose a rape crisis centre, a shelter for battered women and children, and a women's career counselling service. She has also generously supported the establishment of both an innovative women's health centre at the Ottawa Hospital, and an endowed chair for women and the legal profession at the University of Ottawa's Faculty of Law.
