Our 100 Years: The Canadian Federation of University Women

Our 100 Years: The Canadian Federation of University Women


By Dianne Dodd

More than one hundred years in the life of a vibrant organization.

This engaging study of a still active women's organization is more than a centennial history to make its members proud. It also provides a lively exploration of a unique organization founded by early women pioneers of higher education who offered friendship, community engagement, and lifelong learning. With a leadership of exceptional women, the organization played a largely overlooked role in the women's movement by supporting education and the arts, encouraging young women to pursue higher education and scholarships, and through its advocacy initiatives helped to build the Canadian nation.
