WAM March 09-10 Mary Walsh - Woman of the Year

Actor, writer, director, social and political activist Mary Walsh will have to make more room on the mantelpiece. She's got to hang those doctorates on the wall and shunt aside some of her eighteen Gemini Awards to make room for this latest accolade. The National Women's Committee of the Alliance of Canadian Cinema, Television and Radio Artists, ACTRA, acclaimed Mary as the 2013 Woman of the Year on Thursday evening. She speaks with host Mack Furlong.
