Women Unite: Voices from Toronto Feminist Activists, 1970–98
May 18, 2020 - Mar. 31, 2021
The Rise Up! Feminist Digital Archive will conduct 25 interviews with Toronto-based activists in the feminist movement from 1970 to 1998. The interviews will enhance the organization’s archival history of the feminist movement and be accessible to all. Interviewees come from sectors, including equal pay, reproductive rights, lesbian rights, child care, women against violence against women, anti-Black racism, visible-minority women, immigrant women, Indigenous women, disability rights, the labour movement, and feminist publishing. The goal is to explore the key issues and debates of the period, as experienced by these women. The organization will process and upload the interviews to its website and safely preserve them for the future.
