Centennial of Women's Suffrage
Canadian Museum of History
Thursday, October 15, 2015
Nellie McClung. Henrietta Muir Edwards. Emily Murphy. Louise McKinney. Irene Parlby.
Five women whose vision, dedication and perseverance changed the status of women in the Commonwealth. A century ago they took historic first steps to achieve the right for Canadian women to vote.
These champions of change helped to bring women to their rightful place at the table.
And now you can too.
The theme of this year’s reception and dinner celebrates the achievements of women past and present — from suffragists and scientists to pilots and poets — the mothers, daughters, sisters and wives whose collective work and wisdom have nurtured a nation.
Join us in celebrating remarkable women of the past, together with our History Makers of today.
