British Explorer Gertrude Bell.

Women in History lecture series

Although frequently overlooked, criticized, or even condemned, women have been just as much a part of history as men. In this lecture series, three exceptional professors from UVic, SFU, and UBC will speak to us about the lives and accomplishments of three exceptional women.

All lectures are 3:30 pm–5:00 pm in L224, second floor of the library.
