The series, which takes place every second Thursday from January 13 to March 10, is accompanied by a new exhibition of the same character, “A woman’s job is never done”.
The series will be presented by film critic and writer Joan Knicks.

The new exhibition of the museum will last from January 29 to November 13. It offers a better understanding of women throughout history, seeking to celebrate their diversity in the workforce and highlight the strengths of women in the community.
The exhibition is a production of the Niagara Falls Museums editorial team, using both the history and contemporary culture of Niagara Falls to tell a story of female empowerment.
Items from the museum collection and the stories of Niagara Falls women will be on display and woven together to achieve this.
