Changemakers: Women at the University of Toronto and the Struggle for Equity – an online exhibition curated by Museum Studies graduates Bryna Bernstein, Camilo Mejia and Kes Murray and presented in partnership with the University of Toronto Archives.
This exhibit explores the fight for gender equity at the University of Toronto. Female faculty members and students from the 1950s to the present were interviewed on topics such as pay equity, education equity, equal opportunities, and life at the University. These women made it a goal to challenge the status quo and fight for change, on campus and off.
