- Women have provided invaluable contributions to the development of Canada's education system. Through the presentation of digitized archival material, this collection is intended to detail the successes of women in the field of education, as well as the difficulties faced by many of these women in their chosen field, such as overcoming gender inequality in the workforce. Over 3000 textual, photographic, audio, and visual records from the holdings of the University of Manitoba Archives & Special Collections, the Ukrainian Catholic Archeparchy of Winnipeg Archives, and the Societé Historique de Saint-Boniface pertaining to the topic of women in education have been digitized for this collection.
