Women’s Archives: Explore our Collections

This exhibit invites you to discover key events in the Canadian women's movement, from 1960-2000, using archival documents from the University of Ottawa Archives and Special Collections.  

This exhibit explores several themes, through timelines of events, actions and achievements that attest to the dynamism of second wave feminism in Canada.

These timelines are not an exhaustive chronology of the history of the women’s movement in Canada, but rather serves as a tool for exploring related archival documents, some of which have never been published!
