Celebrating 100 years of Manitoba Womenís Right to Vote

January 28th, 2016 - January 28th, 2016

This once-in-a-lifetime event will be held at the RBC Convention Centre Winnipeg, hosted by ET Canada’s Cheryl Hickey, with Manitoba Lt. Gov. Janice Filmon as guest speaker.  The highlight of the evening’s program will be the presentation of the inaugural Nellie Awards (The Nellies), presented in part by the Winnipeg Free Press, recognizing Manitoba women who have followed Nellie McClung’s footsteps through their work in social justice, women’s and human rights. 

Another part of these celebrations is The Manitoba Museum’s new travelling exhibit, Nice Women Don’t Want The Vote. The exhibit looks at some of the ways Manitoba and Canada have struggled to provide full voting rights for all its citizens.
