The Petticoat Expeditions, Part One: Anna Jameson directed by Don Haig

This short film from The Petticoat Expeditions series follows acclaimed British author Anna Jameson to Upper Canada, where she journeyed solo through the Canadian wilderness in 1830 – a time when it was unheard of for a women to travel alone.

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.
