Join us February 10th to hear Martha Hanna discuss the experiences of Canadian war wives during the Great War. More than 80,000 Canadian women were married to men who left home to fight in the war, and its effects on their lives were transformative and often traumatic. Yet the everyday struggles of Canadian war wives, lived far from the battlefields of France, have remained in the shadows of historical memory. Dr. Hanna's talk will recover the voices of these women from the shadows they've occupied for so many years.
