Although women today may be full participants in the movement for peace and justice, not so long ago they were silenced by society’s belief that women had no place in the affairs of state.
Voice of Women - The First Thirty Years documents the ground-breaking actions of a group of Canadian women to bring forth their vision of a peaceful world. In 1960, taking the name “Voice of Women”, they began a movement that helped women find the courage to speak out on political issues.
This is the story, not just of their struggle for peace, but of their bold struggle as women to be recognized and heard on the issues of peace justice and equality.
Through rich archival footage and personal testimonials, Voice of Women - The First Thirty Years explores the values and philosophy by which these strong and committed women still live and work today.
