Daly House's newest exhibit "The New Woman's Fashion Revolution: 1880-1890 is now open. It's a 100-year retrospective that focuses on the unprecedented changes in women's fashions from the 1880s to the 1980s and the underlying seismic shifts in women's roles in Canadian Society.  Artifacts from the Museum's own collections examine the emergence of the "New Woman" as she was dubbed in popular culture from the 1890s. During this  time period women started to move away from their traditional domestic roles and began pursing higher education, office jobs, active sports, and social reforms. The active lives of the new woman required more practical streamlined clothing than the many-layered, heavily draped outfits of the late Victorian lady. Visit Daly House Museum and enjoy a stunning visual experience bound to appeal to costume lovers and historians alike!  The exhibit runs until February 28, 2019.
