October is Women’s History Month and we’re celebrating by hosting a Herstory Café on October 2nd from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm. Bring your Stetson and enjoy Mary-Ellen Kelm’s illustrated talk on “Frontier Femininity: rodeo cowgirls in B.C.” Dr. Kelm is the author of A Wilder West, Rodeo in Western Canada and teaches history at Simon Fraser University.
The event is co-sponsored by the Friends of the Vancouver City Archives and Simon Fraser University’s Department of Gender, Sexuality and Women’s Studies.
Herstory Café has been presenting accessible and thought-provoking public events on women’s history topics since 2007. We hope to see you here for an evening of cowgirl culture and great conversation.
