This exhibit is intended to feature a select number of objects from the collection of the Canadian Science and Technology Museum in Ottawa, Ontario. Together, the objects displayed will highlight the intersection of the history of science and technology in Canada with women and gender. Each object will be accompanied by a brief description written by an historian. This description will draw out the theme of the exhibit by addressing how the object speaks to women's contributions in the field of science and technology, as well as conceptions of gender that inform how technology is designed, implemented and subsequently remembered.
