Round Table Discussion: Women From Everywhere in Pluralist Montreal

Table ronde

October 3, 2018

Presented in relation to the exhibition Shalom Montreal: Stories and Contributions of the Jewish Community, the panel discussion Des femmes de partout dans un Montréal pluriel (Women from everywhere in pluralist Montreal) will underscore the contributions of Jewish and other women to the city of Montreal. How do they create their history? How do they express themselves? What roles have these women played in Montreal society and politics?

Discussion hosted by Miriam Fahmy.
