On February 14, 1981, the Ad Hoc Committee of Women and the Constitution (the Ad Hockers) made Canadian history. As Canada was preparing to repatriate its Constitution from Great Britain, women were determined that they would make changes regarding their rights.
They descended on Parliament Hill and held their own conference on constitutional change to ensure that gender rights were recognized.
This excerpt from the documentary "Constitute!" shows the lead-up and opening to that conference as remembered , 25 years later, by Michele Landsberg, Linda Palmer Nye and Doris Anderson.
