Women and War

October is Women's History Month in Canada. Proclaimed in 1992 by the Government of Canada, Women's History Month provides an opportunity for Canadians to learn about the important contributions of women to our society - and to the quality of our lives in the 21st century. We also celebrate International Women's Week, which begins on March 2 and concludes on March 8 with International Women's Day. This feature is dedicated to the experiences and lives of women in times of war, military conflict and peace.
