Ontario Honours Women Who Won The War

“They made the guns that helped to win the war and save the world.
The 16,000 women who worked in the massive Lakeview Small Arms Munitions factory during the Second World War manufactured millions of Sten guns and Lee-Enfield rifles.”

As part of International Women’s Day Women who worked in the munitions industry were honored in a ceremony at Queen’s Park, Toronto. The whole story can be found in an article in the “Toronto Star” Friday March 12, 2010.

  1. Nice article! Thanks for pointing this out. At the newspaper, the women in the photo are labelled as 'grandmothers'. Do you happen to know any more about the photo?
