Abstract

Although women's history has flourished in Canada for over thirty years, this has had little impact on historic sites in Ontario, which are dominated by military themes and male interpreters. Research shows that this is historically inaccurate, and that women were well represented at military sites in the past.

Quoique l'histoire des femmes ait prospéré au Canada pour plus de trente ans, cela n'a eu que peu d'impact sur les sites historiques en Ontario qui sont dominés par des thèmes militaires et des interprètes mâles. La recherche démontre que ceci est historiquement inexact, et que les femmes étaient bien représentées dans les sites militaires dans le passé.
