Marguerite Bourgeoys Historical Site: Watch your calendar!

If there was one feminist well ahead of her time, it would surely be Marguerite Bourgeoys! To get the full scope of her progressive vision for teaching, the next temporary exhibit held at the Marguerite Bourgeoys Historical Site will be centered around the CND nuns and their companions, the Ursulines, and how they taught the sciences to young women. The public will be able to discover their cutting-edge methods of teaching girls of the age, both feeding their eager minds and satisfying parents’ concerns.

Open until April 28th, 2022.
