História biográfica

She obtained a Bachelor of Art in English Literature from the University of Ottawa in 1971 and also studied at the Université d’Aix-en-Provence in 1972 and 1973, as well as completing courses in management publishing. In the late 1970s, Wendy McPeake was involved in various groups and organizations working on women's issues. She was very active in the Ottawa Women's Centre, frequently sitting on the Policy Committee. She was involved in organizing various events, including a musical fundraiser in 1977 with the artists Angele Arsenault, CT & April, and Ellen McIllwaine, as well as another concert fundraiser that featured Rita MacNeil.

Wendy McPeake founded and was a very active member of the Political Action Collective, renamed the Feminist Action Collective in 1981. She worked as a marketing manager at the National Museums of Canada (1980 to 1984), as Assistant to the Director of Publishing at McClelland and Stewart publishing house (1984-1985), as Director, Publishing and Product Development at the Canadian Museum of Science and Technology Corporation (1985-1995), and as Director Commercial Operations at the Canada Museum of Science and Technology Corporation (1994-1998). She is currently a freelance publishing consultant and editor.

História custodial

Wendy McPeake donated the majority of records in this fonds in May 2016. She explained that the records related to the Ottawa Women’s Centre were stored in her basement after the Women’s Centre/Chez Nous closed. Moving them twice, the last move was to Women’s Place on Besserer Street in 1990. An accrual was made in 2018.

Âmbito e conteúdo

This fonds consists of Wendy McPeake's personal files. It is composed mainly of textual records from the late 1970s to the early 1980s. It contains files related to her involvement in various groups and organizations such as the Ottawa Women’s Centre, the Political Action Collective, the Feminist Action Collective, the Local 7/SORWUC, and the Public Service Alliance of Canada Women’s Committee. It includes materials related to feminist publishers from Canada and the United States, collected by Wendy McPeake when she was arts coordinator for Upstream magazine. The fonds also contains various subject files that reflect Wendy McPeake’s interests during this period. The 1970s was an active period for feminist organizations, especially at the grass-roots level, where a rich feminist culture of politics, music, publishing, and art flourished. Thus, this fonds offers insight into the Women’s Movement in Ottawa, mostly during the late 1970s to the early 1980s.
