Let's get this discussion started!
From September to early December Canada’s History will host education- and community-based webinars inspired by Canadian women's history.
The 2015 fall webinar series will include a variety of topics in Canadian women's history. We hope to start a conversation leading into the 8th Canada's History Forum: Centennial of Women's Suffrage, and continue the conversation as we move towards celebrations in 2016. Join us in listening to these phenomenal presenters speak about prominent figures, moments, and places in Canada's women's history, as well as what has influenced the teaching of women's history in the classroom and what it looks like today.
For every webinar you attend you will receive one entry in a draw for a chance to win a book published by Canada’s History. The winner will be able to choose from 100 Photos That Changed Canada or 100 Days That Changed Canada. This draw will take place 16th of December, 2015 at 11:59 pm ET.
Register now to guarantee that you will receive reminders leading up to the webinar, links to the chat room and the recording before everyone else.
