Canadian Women in War

The Canadian War Museum located at 1 Vimy Place in Ottawa, Ontario, there will be an exhibit called World War Women from 23 October 2015 to 20 March 2016 in the Lieutenant- Colonel John McCrae Gallery.

The press release says that “The First and Second World Wars transformed the lives of Canadian women, as they took on new roles in response to the inevitable trials and tragedies of wartime. Through artifacts, images and firsthand accounts, World War Women explores their stories, showing how women’s contributions challenged perceptions — within society and within themselves — of their capabilities”.

To go along with this exhibit, there will be a War – In Their Own Words in which you can talk to the World War Women volunteers. Hear their personal stories about how they or their loved ones experienced war.
