About the exhibition:

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.
