This exhibition combines portraits of immigrant women from 24 different countries with their granddaughters’ reflections on their legacies. These stories of hardship and resilience reflect immigrant life, the changing family in Canada, feminism, intergenerational relationships, and aging from many cultural and religious perspectives. The women represented are from Asia, Africa, Europe, the Caribbean, India, and the Middle East. Each photo is accompanied by the granddaughter’s reflections in English, French, and the grandmother’s native language.
