CAYUGA—This May, you are invited to the following.
May 15 – Heritage Series: Women Wielding Power
This talk will explore the suffrage movement and the history of women’s rights at the Cayuga Museum, 1 to 3 p.m. The suffrage movement in Canada began in the 1890s but it wasn’t until 1920 that women got the right to vote in Ontario. The movers and shakers of the time included Dr. Emily Stowe – first female doctor to practice medicine in Canada – and Adelaide Hunter Hoodless, who fought for better education and conditions for women.
