The Petticoat Expeditions, Part Two: Frances Hopkins directed by Don Haig

This short film from The Petticoat Expeditions series follows artist Frances Hopkins to Canada, where she journeyed by canoe with the voyageurs during the final days of the fur trade 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.
