Sisters United:
Women's Suffrage in Saskatchewan
Travelling Exhibit

A Travelling Exhibit produced by the Diefenbaker Canada Centre

July 30 - September 20, 2018

Sisters United

 

View the compelling stories of those who laid the foundation for women's rights in Saskatchewan, the struggles and successes experienced by local suffragists, and how they advocated for political representation. Visitors will gain a richer and deeper understanding of the history of suffrage by exploring the links between women's franchise, agrarian politics, the Great War, and the impact that global suffrage movements had on Saskatchewan.

Sisters United not only highlights how women achieved the vote within Saskatchewan, but also shows the movement of women wanting to be recognized as persons. Though the personal stories of the seven featured suffragists, it showcases women who were strong leaders and activists within their community, at a time when this was not common or encouraged. Sisters United demonstrates the growth of a province and the emergence of a movement that resulted in the first important step towards women's equity rights, greater social reform and political justice.
