Treasure Trove for BC Women’s History

The West Kootenay Women’s Association Digital History Project, under direction of Marcia Braundy, has just made available a treasure trove for BC woman’s history and feminisms.  The timelined site provides easy navigation and documentation for students, teachers, or researchers interested in localizing history through the everyday records of women and pro-feminist activists in the Kootenays.  Students of history are given a rare glimpse of the types of records that it took to sustain a feminist movement and culture, and scale up activism to change across the province and country.  Records such as the West Kootenay Women’s Association newsletters and images are priceless!  Well done Marcia and thank you!!!

One response to “Treasure Trove for BC Women’s History

  1. Thanks for the great publicity for this award-winning site, http://www.KootenayFeminism.com . Had two presentations at Congress on this for the Canadian Historical Association, and one on the book, Men & Women and Tools – Bridging the Divide for CSSE.
