Women's History Month

Oct-7-2004 - Nov-1-2004

October is Women's History Month in Canada, established in 1992 to recognize the important contribution of women to Canadian society and the vital role that they play in shaping Canada's future. The 75th Anniversary of the "Persons Case" and the role of the "Famous Five" is also being acknowledged this year. We showcased our collection of books related to women's history in Canada as well as books about the "Famous Five" or books written by the "Famous Five". The "Famous Five" are: Emily Murphy, Irene Parlby, Louise McKinney, Henrietta Edwards and Nellie McClung. We displayed a poster on Women's History Month received from the Status of Women Canada as well as signage giving background information on Women's History Month and the Famous Five.
