A history professor at Brandon University has been given a prestigious national award for her career efforts in women’s history, which include films, books and work with the Canadian Human Rights Museum and the Canadian Museum of History.

Rhonda Hinther captured the Marion Dewar Prize, an award in honour of former Ottawa mayor and feminist activist Marion Dewar that celebrates Canadian historians who specialize in women’s history.

It’s awarded annually by the National Capital Committee on the Scholarship, Preservation and Dissemination of Women’s History.

"Rhonda’s commitment to women’s history has consistently expressed itself not only in her academic and curatorial work but also in her involvement in women’s history organizations," the award selection committee said.

Hinther is an associate professor in the BU history department and the former director of research and curation at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights. She is also adjunct professor at the University of Winnipeg and Carleton University, and research associate at the University of Manitoba and the Carleton Centre for Public History.

This past May, she was elected vice-chair of the Canadian Committee for Women’s History.

"This national tribute is richly deserved," said incoming BU president Gervan Fearon. "Rhonda is tireless in her efforts to bring women’s history to today’s audiences, adding to the public knowledge and dialogue. Well done! Her work speaks to the values and contributions that make Brandon University an outstanding institution."

Hinther has also played a role in several historical film projects, including "If Day: The Nazi Invasion of Winnipeg," "Black Field" and "The Oldest Profession in Winnipeg: The Red Light District of 1909-1912."

Her forthcoming book explores pro-communist and radical Ukrainians in Canada.
