Let Them Howl
The year 2016 marks the 100th anniversary of women first winning the right to vote in Canada. To mark this important milestone, the Museum presents its first outdoor exhibition, created in partnership with Library and Archives Canada (LAC).
Let Them Howl: 100 Years in the Women’s Rights Struggle features reproductions of 12 portraits taken mostly from LAC’s collection, including photographs by renowned artists such as Yousuf Karsh and Bryan Adams.
Whileexploring the exhibition, you can take a photo of yourself in a special “suffragist” frame to show your support for women’s rights! Use #LetThemHowl and #VisitCMHR to share.
The exhibition is also available on our mobile app, which includes accessibility features designed for people with vision disabilities. The app can be downloaded for free (search “Canadian Museum for Human Rights”) from the App Store or Google Play.
The exhibition was open from February 12 to 21 at the Festival du Voyageur site in Winnipeg (Fort Gibraltar, 866 St. Joseph Street). It will re-open on March 8 for public viewing at the Fort Gibraltar site in Winnipeg.
A version of the exhibition is also being shown along Ottawa’s Rideau Canal Skateway, under the Bank Street Bridge.
