Nothing Matters Now But Victory: Molly Lamb Bobak and Canadian Servicewomen

Watch the recording below! Special guest Stacey Barker, Arts and Military History Historian from the Canadian War Museum, looks at the impact of the Second World War on Canadian women (mostly those who chose to join the military) through the art and wartime experiences of Molly Lamb Bobak.

This virtual talk was offered as part of the World War Women exhibit programming, streaming Live to FB and Youtube on Saturday November 20, 2021.

About World War Women:

World War Women explores the contributions made by women to Canada’s participation in the First and Second World Wars.

During these periods of extraordinary change and hardship, women served in the military, took on paid and volunteer war work and, in many cases, waited and worried about loved ones in uniform, some of whom they would never see again. This exhibition explores the challenges women faced during two World Wars, examines the choices they made, and highlights objects that tell their stories.

This exhibition has been developed by the Canadian War Museum, Ottawa.

This painting is the work of Molly Lamb Bobak, the only female Canadian official war artist.
