VOW Peace Exhibit

Together with archivists, writers, artists and other peace women, we launched our travelling VOW coordinated women’s exhibition, “Building Peace, Making History”illustrating a century of Canadian grassroots women’s extensive work for peace and non-violence locally, nationally and internationally.

Available for public exhibition. To discuss hosting arrangements or for further information, please contact us.


During the recent unveiling event in Ottawa, the Secretary-General Canadian Commission for UNESCO, David A. Walden stated:

“Today we pay tribute to women and their achievements in the pursuit of peace and development. While the exhibition displays different aspects of women’s lives and their contributions to society, they all share one common theme: that there can be no equality without the empowerment of women in all aspects of life: economic, political, social and cultural.”
