Bonnie Schmidt is currently a PhD candidate at Simon Fraser and the recipient of both a SSHRC graduate scholarship for her master’s program and a SSHRC doctoral scholarship.

She returned to post-secondary education later in life, earning a BA in 2004 and receiving a SSHRC Graduate Scholarship and entering the Master’s program in History at Simon Fraser University later that year. She completed her Master’s thesis, Print and protest: A study of the women’s suffrage movement in nineteenth-century English periodical literature, in 2006 and entered the PhD program to study the history of women in the RCMP.

Her dissertation, “Women in Red Serge: Female Police Bodies and the Disruption of the Image of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police,” is in progress and is being supervised by Dr. Willeen Keough.

Bonnie has spoken at a number of conferences and has one publication: In the fall of 2009, the RCMP Quarterly commissioned her to write a feature article titled “Women in Red Serge: Thirty-Five Years Later,” in honour of the thirty-fifth anniversary of women in the RCMP. Two additional publications on women in the RCMP are in the works.
