The Canadian History Hall abounds in tales of the many fabulous women who have shaped Canada’s history. In celebration of Women’s History Month, our interpreters will showcase three of these stories. Join us to learn about the important role played by Métis women from the height of the fur trade to the present day. Explore the jobs that women filled during the Second World War, and hear some of their personal stories. You also won’t want to miss the story of Joan O’Malley, the woman who sewed Canada’s first maple leaf flag on a stormy winter night. Come and explore your history with us!
