Telling the Story of Canadian Women from Exceptional to Everyday Life
Canadian Museum of History, Gatineau, QC
Over 100 years ago Canadian women achieved a significant milestone. In January 1916, the province of Manitoba granted women the right to vote in provincial elections. Women in Saskatchewan and Alberta followed shortly afterwards.
Gaining the vote was just one moment in a long history of women’s achievements. And while their stories didn’t often appear in the history books, their contributions range from the daily struggle for life as early settlers to the fight to have women recognized as persons under the law.
The one hundredth anniversary of women’s suffrage in Canada provided an opportunity to look back on the lives of these exceptional women and, by sharing their stories of perseverance and determination, inspire young Canadian women today.
