This short film from The Petticoat Expeditions follows the life of social activist Lady Aberdeen, who devoted herself to social reform and helped found both the National Council of Women of Canada and the Victorian Order of Nurses in Canada.

The Petticoat Expeditions series, which uses the words and works of 3 extraordinary British women to recount their experiences in 19th-century Canada, paints an inspiring portrait of women who would not be constrained by convention.
