Meet some of the women who have challenged inequality and made a lasting impact on Toronto. The struggles of women to overcome discrimination based on gender, sexuality, race, class, and ability have been a tangible part of Toronto’s past and present. The exhibit, in partnership with Women in Toronto Politics, will travel across Toronto during the month of March, and is part of the Myseum of Toronto’s Intersections festival, exploring different perspectives on the city’s natural, cultural, and historical diversity, running from March 6 – 31, 2016.

This exhibit celebrates the pursuit of social justice and asks the question: how have passionate women challenged inequality and changed our city in the past?
More importantly, this exhibit invites you to reflect on your own experiences and asks the question: how will you, and the women in your life, change our city moving forward?
Join the conversation with the hashtag #TorontoTheJust and let us know what women and stories have inspired you. Throughout the month of March, we will be showcasing stories of other women, historic and contemporary, with articles on our website.
