Waterloo Region Museum

Phone: 519-748-1914
Address: 10 Huron Road, Kitchener

What has it meant to be a woman in Canada throughout its 150 year history? This nationally travelling exhibit, created and toured by the Waterloo Region Museum, explores how women have transformed Canadian politics, work, and everyday life. Trailblazing highlights the experiences of women - mothers, sisters, daughters, partners, and friends - from all walks of Canadian life. The exhibit 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. Waterloo Region Museum is working with a group of advisors - womens’ history professors - from the University of Waterloo. Input from the public and various groups from across Canada are also influencing the design and content of the exhibit.
