This special exhibition focuses on the experiences of Canadian women during the First and Second World Wars. Through four themes, World War Women shares the personal stories of women whose lives were transformed by conflict.

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.
