Women’s History Month
Details:

Over the last 150 years, Canadian women have made notable strides toward gender equality in our workplaces and communities, and each year citizens and activists across Canada honour Women’s History Month to celebrate those advancements.  Inequities such as the gender wage gapand the continued presence of misogyny, sexism, and discrimination in our workplaces and communities demonstrate that there is still more work to be done when it comes to realizing full equality for women in Canada. This October, let us honour the contributions that so many great women have made to our country, while recommitting ourselves to achieving substantive equality for all women in Canada.

City on Edge: A Century of Vancouver Activism
Details:

Explore the history of our city’s street protests at this major, new photo-based exhibition showcasing rarely seen walks of resistance. The project features over 650 images of street demonstrations, protests, and riots from the early 1900s to present day from the archives of the Vancouver Sun and The Province newspapers. From the shoreworkers’ strike at the Battle of Ballantyne Pier in 1935 to rallying of anti-logging groups at Clayoquot Sound in 1993, these records demonstrate the power of “ordinary people” in mobilizing public opinion and effecting change locally and globally.
