This booklet provides a different way to explore the street of the capital of Canada, Ottawa. Hop between 24 points related to notable women who left their mark to make Canada a better place. Most of the time, while strolling in a city, there are hardly specific landmarks related to women’s legacy. This booklet will enable you to identify these places and provide a better understanding of Canada’s culture and HerStory.
This self-guided tour maps the historic females’ contribution in Ottawa’s center. A diverse group of local women wished to highlight the contribution of women in the public space of their city and, for that, created this tour.
In the first point of interest, you can see the Ottawa River, where Aboriginal people had lived freely before the European settlers arrived. Continue to Parliament Hill to visit the Women Are Person Monument, which commemorates the Famous Five, the women who fought for the Canadian women to be included as persons and for their equal rights. The tour continues along Wellington, Elgin, and Bank Streets. Use the map in the middle of the booklet to navigate between places and stop to learn more about the diverse women from different fields of life – politics, the army, art, activism, and more.
