Rise UP! A Digital Feminist Archive of the Canadian women’s movement has launched - just in time to mark Women’s History Month! The website remains very much a work-in-progress, but we didn’t want to wait any longer to share it with you.

Rise Up! aims to capture the diversity, vibrancy, and radical legacy of feminist activism in Canada from the 1970s to the 1990s. The goal of the archive is to celebrate and document the achievements, initiatives and struggles of the Canadian women’s movement. We hope to foster research, promote inter-generational conversations and inspire radical activism.

The archive includes links to:

Publications: so far we have searchable copies of more than 40 publications, many introduced by their original editors.

Timeline: highlighting significant moments, contributions and turning points.

Activism: featuring key issues and organizations, some introduced by women who were involved.

Culture: includes music, films, buttons and posters.

Teaching: resources to help people use the materials in their classrooms.

There is still much to do and many voices still missing or incomplete. We will keep adding content to the site, but to continue this work, we need your help!

The site has been made possible with the support and assistance of women’s organizations, feminists across the country, and students working on the project. Thank you all!

We hope you enjoy Rise Up! and return often! For more information, contact us at
