Inspiring the Future

Rise Up is an essential resource for learning about and researching the women’s movement in Canada.

Over the 6 years of its life, the Rise Up archive has become integral to the lessons and learning of many students and researchers across Canada.

Inspiring the future

Our aim was always to inspire young people to future creation and action on social justice and women’s issues through learning about our past.

Free Access

We don’t charge anything for access to our archive and all of the many resources available in it. The archive is completely free to use and always will be.


Rise Up believes that outstanding scholarship is produced, and the highest level of human understanding and knowledge is attained by sharing all we know and learn. So we share the content that we have created as part of a Creative Commons license. This includes our lesson plans and other educational resources.

Accessible Online

Because all of our material is online, the archive is far more accessible to students and researchers than a Canadian women’s archive has ever been. No travelling required. Just open up a browser.
