Watch: Why is it so hard to find the voices of women in history?

The post is the fourth in a series on the Student as Scholar initiative at the University of Prince Edward Island.

Dr. Sarah Glassford is an assistant professor of history at UPEI. In her History/Women’s Studies 286 course, History of Women in Modern Canada, she teaches her students to dig for artefacts that tell the story of women. In honour of International Women’s Day, we asked her the question, "why is it so difficult to find the voices of women in history?"

Watch Dr. Glassford's response, and a description of the creative research assignment she uses to illustrate it with her students, below.
