"When Anne Innis saw her first giraffe at the age of three, she was smitten. She knew she had to learn more about this marvelous animal. Twenty years later, now a trained zoologist, she set off alone to Africa to study the behavior of giraffe in the wild. Years later, Jane Goodall and Dian Fossey would be driven by a similar devotion to study the behavior of wild apes. In Smitten by Giraffe the noted feminist reflects on her scientific work as well as the leading role she has played in numerous activist campaigns. On returning home to Canada, Anne married physicist Ian Dagg, had three children, published a number of scientific papers, taught at several local universities, and in 1967 earned her PhD in biology at the University of Waterloo. Dagg was continually frustrated in her efforts to secure a position as a regular professor despite her many publications and very good teaching record. Finally she opted instead to pursue her research as an independent "citizen scientist," while working part time as an academic advisor. Dagg would spend many years fighting against the marginalization of women in the arts and sciences."-- "Boldly documenting widespread sexism in Canadian universities while also discussing Dagg's involvement with important zoological topics such as homosexuality, infanticide, sociobiology, and taxonomy, Smitten by Giraffe offers an inside perspective on the workings of scientific research and debate, the history of Canadian academia, and the rise of second-wave feminism."--… (mere)

Anne Innis Dagg rocketed into public view in Canada when the movie about her life, The Woman Who Loves Giraffes was screened in Toronto in 2018. Without support from universities or organizations, using her own resources, Anne set out for Africa to study giraffes before any other woman researcher went out to do field research on large animals. Anne should have received the same ovations as Goodale, Fossey, and Galdikas but was ignored and rejected for tenure by her alma mater, University of Waterloo. All this has changed now and Canadian academia, trying to compensate for lost time, has showered her with accolades. This book is her autobiography and a fine read it is although the reader will cringe at the shame worthy behaviour of the male administrators at the University of Waterloo. Through it all, Anne has continued to be a person others would want to get to know.

I was delighted with this wonderful book and I am in awe of the author and all she has accomplished, but with enormous hurdles in the way. Although her animal work is extensive and extraordinary, she describes situations and conditions that remain as problems for women today in the effort to become anything like equal to men in terms of work and life. She seems to have an incredible mind to absorb and catalogue and categorize so many things. I just loved this book!! ( )
