The Women’s Kit was exhibited at the 2015 Feminist Art Conference as part of the year’s theme Looking Forward, Looking Back and raised important questions. What have we learned from past to present? What progress have we made? What contemporary issues are missing from The Women’s Kit, time capsule of the 1970s feminist art movement in Canada?
The FAC Committee undertook a digitization project of the analogue kit with Jennifer McKinley at the helm. She procured a grant from a private donor to cover the costs of digitization and website design. She filmed Pamela Harris in conversation about the creation of The Women’s Kit. Members of the FAC Committee spent long days scanning, photographing, measuring, labeling, cropping, checking, double checking and uploading the contents in multiple volunteer sessions.
