 Saturday, February 6th

 Imogene Lim (professor of Anthropology and Global Studies,Vancouver Island University)  and  John Price ( professor of Pacific and Asian Canadian History, University of Victoria) will be presenting :

Chinese Canadian Women: Island Stories from the Archives

 Too often history is told through the eyes of men past. This talk will acknowledge the life stories and contributions of Chinese Canadian women from Vancouver Island.

Mining the archives from Victoria to Cumberland, the illustrated presentation will bring to the fore a host of women who made a difference: from soldiers to doctors, nurses to teachers, in the home or in politics, the Chinese Canadian women who stood up and stand out. 

The banquet is the Lioness  major fundraiser for the year. The evening’s entertainment will include raffle prizes and auction items.
