2016 also marks an important anniversary for the suffrage movement in Canada, and this joint exhibition from Library And Archives Canada and the Canadian Museum For Human Rights chose an interesting location for a series of portraits of women down through that time- along the Rideau Canal at the base of the Bank Street Bridge during Winterlude. In 1916, Manitoba was the first of our provinces to enact voting rights for women as part of the larger suffrage movement of the time, with the other provinces and territories following.
The summer time water level mark can be clearly seen on the structure of the bridge. I'm adding a link before the portraits that I photographed for you to look up more on these women. Where there are no suitable links, I'm adding the panel information.
Agnes Macphail. This is a portrait done by the photographer Yousuf Karsh.
Adrienne Clarkson. This one is done by the musician Bryan Adams, who when he's not performing spends time as a portrait photographer.
