Still Ain’t Satisfied: International Women’s Day in Toronto

March 1st, 2011     by Michelle Schwartz     Comments

The Canadian Lesbian & Gay Archives will be celebrating the 100th anniversary of International Women’s Day with a special exhibit, “International Women’s Day: Toronto Women and the Struggle for Equality.”

Curated by Roberta Wiseman and (infrequent) Shameless blogger Michelle Schwartz, the exhibit will draw from the CLGA’s collection of banners, posters, flyers, and newsletters to trace the rise of the lesbian liberation movement, and its intersection with anti-racist, feminist, and labour activism in Toronto.

The exhibit opens Thursday, March 3rd, at 7:30PM. Admission is FREE!

On opening night we will be joined by members of the Toronto Rape Crisis Centre/Multicultural Women Against Rape, who will discuss their history with International Women’s Day. We will also be raffling off a free subscription to Shameless Magazine!
