Riveting Women

January 12, 2019 - April 07, 2019

2019 marks the 80th anniversary of the start of the Second World War. Women were recruited en masse to fill vacated positions left by men who were oversea fighting, particularly within the ammunitions industry. This exhibition explores the trailblazing working women of Durham Region who worked in factories, as nurses, and everything in between.
