International Women's Day: Toronto Women and the Struggle for Equality curated by Michelle Schwartz and Roberta Wiseman.
The Archives Gallery is proud to celebrate the centennial of International Women's Day (IWD) with an exhibit drawn from its own collection of posters, flyers, photographs, and ephemera. Focusing primarily on IWD activities held in Toronto from the 1970s to present day, the exhibit traces the rise of the lesbian liberation movement, and its intersection with anti-racist, feminist, and labour activism. It will also illustrate the passion, determination, and sheer inventiveness of women in their struggle for equality.
Opening reception March 3, 2011 7:30pm – 10pm with special guests from the Toronto Rape Crisis Centre.
The exhibition runs March 3 - May 12, 2011.
