The Nova Scotia Archives is taking the opportunity of Heritage Day 2018 to celebrate the significant contributions of a number of Nova Scotia women. This page is a gateway to some of the Archives’ virtual exhibits and holdings that record the contributions of the featured women to the social and political advancement of women and the welfare of all in Nova Scotia and beyond. We will be adding to this page, so, check back regularly for new content. More collections from Nova Scotian women are available on
