Dates of existence


In 1973, five Saskatoon women applied for and received an Opportunities For Youth grant. With little background in either research or women's history, they produced and published Herstory: The Canadian Women's Calendar, a calendar documenting the history and achievements of Canadian women. Since then, 50 women have at some time been members of the Saskatoon Women's Calendar Collective; the calendar's 20th edition was published in 1995. When the Collective started, the field of women's history was relatively new: Herstory quickly became, and has remained, a Canadian best-seller, despite a two year hiatus (1983-1984) when one publisher's failure demanded a lengthy search for a new publisher. Each calendar contains profiles of individual women or women's groups, essays on issues, or highlights the work of an author or artist.
