"'...deemed necessary to discriminate...'"

Subject

Canadian Armed Forces

Description

Article that details how two women in the armed forces held a small marriage ceremony in Argentia, and were later dismissed along with several other women, as a direct result of their involvement or presumed involvement. In total, nine women were dismissed.

This article was posted in the Body Politic newsletter. The Body Politic was a queer, activist-based Canadian monthly newsletter that was published from 1971 to 1987. It is one of the most significant queer publications in Canadian history, and played a significant role in amplifying the Gay Liberation Movement and provided a crucial space for queer voices to be heard.
