Project supporters

Sign up for updates about RiseUp!

The Rise Up! collective is deeply grateful to the many, many people who have supported us to get this project off the ground. The early donors who provided seed money; the activists who offered ideas and dug through their collections to locate, then organize materials; the feminist network that offered ideas and helped put us in touch with many contributors; the lawyer who provided advice; the students and volunteers who patiently scanned and digitized documents; and dozens more. There are far too many to name individually – just know that your backing and encouragement has repeatedly buoyed our spirits and sustained our resolve to keep going.

There are three women, however, whose support came at critical turning points in the evolution of this website and who must be singled out for personal mention.

Vicky Drummond, Nellie Langford Rowell Women’s Studies Library

Christine Berkowitz, Associate Professor – Teaching Stream, Dept of Historical and Cultural Studies, University of Toronto Scarborough

Julie Roy, Chef bibliothécaire/Head Librarian, Archives et collections spéciales/Archives and Special Collection, Université d’Ottawa / University of Ottawa

We also want to thank the following volunteers and the students from University of Toronto (Scarborough Campus) and York University for their important contributions. Their many hours of editing, scanning and digitizing publications and other documents have made this website a much richer archive of feminist materials.
