LEGACY: Celebrating African-Canadian Women

Suffragettes and the Liberation Movement are examples of how women have always struggled to get the representation they deserve throughout history. But for Black women in Canada and worldwide, it wasn’t just their gender. The colour of their skins became an obstacle to getting the rights they rightly deserved at every level, municipal, provincial, and federal alike.

Women haven’t been given the attention they deserve for their accomplishments despite the unfavourable circumstances. Despite this adversity, such women as Stephnie Payne, Michaelle Jean and Dr. Avis Glaze have broken down barriers at every level of Canadian society.

Display this poster in your schools and community centres and give Black women the appreciation they have earned.
