Abstract:
This presentation highlights key moments in the women’s suffrage campaign in Nova Scotia, from the 1830s through the 1960s. It will examine the important roles played by groups such as the Women’s Christian Temperance Union, the Halifax Local Council of Women, and the Nova Scotia Equal Suffrage Association, as
well as individuals such as Eliza Ritchie, Edith Archibald, and Mary Chesley.

    @HistoricNS @HTNovaScotia Late response, but yes, indeed! The NS Historical Quarterly published a 1980 article by YS Bains on the Grand Theatre. Several other articles appear in The Dalhousie Review covering early theatre in Halifax. If interested, we can offer citations or article(s)!
