It was a joy to welcome three delegates from universities in Canada at the Women’s Museum Meran. Dr. Kathy Sanford, Dr. Darlene Clover, and Dr. Nancy Taber are currently teaching at the University of Victoria. Their research about the interrelations of gender and museums made them aware of IAWM and women’s museums. After their visit at the Women’s Museum of Denmark, yesterday they visited the IAWM headquarters at the Women’s Museum Meran in order to exchange ideas and experiences.
