This occasion for this photo of Deirdre Gallagher and Shelley Acheson is unknown, but was probably taken at an early OFL Women’s Committee meeting. Deirdre has a long-time history of labour and feminist activism dating from the late 1960s. In the late 1970s she became an Executive member and staff for Organized Working Women. Later she was a founding member of the OFL Women’s Committee, and staff for Steelworkers and Public Service Alliance of Canada. Shelley was the OFL Human Rights staff and liaison to the OFL Women’s Committee, as well as an activist and Executive member of Organized Working Women.
