Jane Hall, author of “The Red Wall: A Woman in the RCMP,” the true story of her experience of being among the first few female troops accepted into the RCMP in 1977.
The Red Wall is a snapshot of a time of tremendous social change.
Originally from Wolfe Island, Ms. Hall now resides in Langley, B.C., but is still a frequent visitor to her family home. After receiving a BA and BEd from Queen’s University, she joined the RCMP in June 1977. She retired in 1998.
Ms. Hall’s first love is Canada and its history. This book is an attempt to contribute to our knowledge and understanding of Canada and hopefully inspire others to do the same.
Ms. Hall has a strong sense of social justice and social responsibility. She believes that for the first time in recorded history, women have not only the opportunity but the responsibility to stand together and provide a strong and clear female voice to governments and multinational companies—a voice to bring balance and humanity back into the world.
