History for Women's Day

Friday March 8 is international women's day. Worth noting: the UBC Press series Women's Suffrage and the Struggle for Democracy, under the general editorship of Veronica Strong-Boag: "a powerful reminder that greater inclusion in our democracy is not a foregone conclusion."

Recently published in the series is Our Voices Must be Heard: Women and the Vote in Ontario by Tarah Brookfield. Joan Sangster's survey, One Hundred Years of Struggle: The History of Women and the Vote in Canada, appeared a year ago. Volumes on the suffrage struggle in the Prairie provinces (by Sarah Carter) and in Quebec (by Denys Baillargeon) are coming in 2019, and other volumes farther out will cover British Columbia (Lara Campbell), Atlantic Canada Alberta (Heidi MacDonald) and Indigenous women (Lianne Leddy).
