History Unfinished. Yesterday. Today. Tomorrow.
We are a gateway, encouraging the discovery of women's history in Canada from an intersectional and inter-generational perspective.
We stand on the shoulders of achievers, activists and advocates from recent and past history. Let's celebrate their successes and the journeys they travelled.
Launched in 2021, we are partnering with the Canadian Research Institute on the Advancement of Women (CRIAW) to deliver a series of virtual events that will explore women’s history, equality, and the role women played in Canada’s evolution.
As part of the International Women’s Day celebrations, and since its launch in 2021, The Women’s History Project will be hosting its fourth webinar, Women’s Health: Sexual Health & Reproductive Justice, on Thursday, March 2, 2023, 4:00pm to 6:00pm.
The subjects of motherhood, sexual health, and reproductive justice are vast and complex. We would like to cover some of the historical highlights relating to birth control, abortion rights, and reproductive technologies. Anti-choice rhetoric, the connection between sexual and mental health, intersectional and ethical issues around access, sterilization, sexual identity, and social class are still relevant today. We would like to consider the relevance of these hot topics and highlight the work that still needs to be done.
