Using multimedia archives from the University of Ottawa Archives and Special Collections, this new digital exhibit “Women & Politics: 1960-2000, Political Activism for Gender Equality” highlights just a few of women's many individual and collective political acts of courage and organizing that took place in the latter half of the 20th century in Canada.

From the radical tactics of the abortion caravan to ad hoc organizing for gender equality in the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, the exhibit touches on political acts that improved women's status, also highlighting relevant contemporary legislation and legal cases through feminist documentary heritage.
