Administrative history

The Nova Scotia Women’s History Society (NSWHS), formerly known as the Halifax Women’s History Society (2013-2021), aims to promote the visibility of women’s history in Nova Scotia. Founded in 2013, the NSWHS has organized conferences, speaker series, lectures, events, a monument, and written materials pertaining to women’s history in Nova Scotia.

One of the NWSHS’ major initiatives was the “WOW, A Woman on the Waterfront” project (2013-2017), which culminated in the installation of “The Volunteers/Les Bénévoles,” a monument on the Halifax waterfront dedicated to the thousands of women who volunteered their time and labour during World War II.
