Event Details

Discover the remarkable stories of the women who have shaped Canadian history in Trailblazing – Women in Canada since 1867 , presented by Acuitas Therapeutics on now at Science World. This thought-provoking exhibition explores 150 years of women’s issues through the themes of Work, Education, Body, Politics, and Violence Against Women. The exhibition also examines work that still needs to be done in the 21st century with respect to women’s rights, different experiences based on race, class and ethnicity, and the experiences of the “everyday” woman.

Highlighted throughout the exhibition are Canadian women who have been “trailblazers” in bringing about social and political change. Visitors will 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 Sheila Watt-Cloutier, a Nobel Peace Prize nominee in 2007 and Inuk who advocates for the environmental, cultural and human rights of Inuit of the Arctic. All their stories will inspire.
