Montreal women's history
« on: June 21, 2009, 12:06:30 AM »
I was at an AGM this past Tuesday for a women's centre. I met one of the original members from back in the 1970's when it opened. She told me about a conference of about 1000 women organised by radical feminists from Downtown Montreal called New something or other that took place in Dollard Des Ormeaux (west island municipality in Montreal). I( have never heard of this before. Nothing online regarding it. Have any of you heard of this before ?

I don't recall offhand - there were SO many regroupments and mass meetings and conferences back then. Dollard seems like an odd place; is there a CEGEP or other meeting-place there? I don't recall any CEGEPs or similar meeting-places on the West Island between Vanier in St-Laurent and John Abbott in Ste-Anne-de-Bellevue.

Perhaps you could ask for help at the Simone de Beauvoir Institute at Concordia, or at la Maison Roback-Parent, a clearing house for many feminist groups here including some involved in research.

It does seem like an odd place- especially since in the 1970's Dollard was still pretty rural. 1000 women would have registered- even 100 if she made a mistake. Thanks Lagatta
