What has it meant to be a woman in Canada throughout its 150-year history?

 

This nationally travelling exhibit explores how women have transformed Canadian politics, work, and everyday life. Trailblazing highlights the experiences of women - mothers, sisters, daughters, partners, and friends - from all walks of Canadian life. 

 

Each thematic area includes historic and contemporary narratives, multi-media presentations, artifacts, and in some cases, hands-on interactives. Learn about the challenges faced by women both historically and today, and discover achievements from across the country. 

Highlighted throughout the exhibit are Canadian women who have been “trailblazers” in bringing about social and political change. Come learn about the accomplishments of hundreds of remarkable women. From Hide Hyodo Shimizu (a teacher who organized a school system in British Columbia’s Japanese internment camps during the Second World War) to Shelia Watt-Cloutier (Nobel Peace 

Prize nominee in 2007), their stories will inspire.

The Trailblazing: Women in Canada since 1867 exhibit was created and produced by the Waterloo Region Museum and was funded by the Region of Waterloo. The exhibit was also funded in part by the Government of Canada through the Department of Canadian Heritage / Museums Assistance Program. Tour managed by Science North.
