New CWAG Listserv & History Project

1. New Listserv: CWAG has just set up a new listserve. If you are not already on the list, and would like to be on it, please visit:  
Subscription information available at this link.

2. CWAG History Project
We are looking for documentary material from the Canadian Women and Geography Study Group, particularly newsletters, posters, letters, photos, etc. to fill in our archives, and write a history of the Study Group that turns 33 this year! If you have any material, please send it along by e- or snail mail.  The late 1990s are particularly sparse so if you have any related documents, we would really appreciate your time and effort!  - Ann Marie Murnaghan (

CWAG aims to provide a forum for people interested in issues of access, equity, and the well-being of women in geography and for those whose research is linked to questions of gender as they relate to relations of class, race/ethnicity, sexuality, nationality, and ability. 

Please scroll through the links on the left and below to find out the latest about who we are and what we're up to.

CWAG particularly encourages student membership and participation in CWAG activities, including conference sessions, social events, newsletter contributions, and other opportunities.
