Champions of Women's Rights Leading Canadian women and their battles for social justice
$9.99

The stories of Canadian women who challenged the establishment and paved the way for greater equality are compelling. From the mid 1800s to the 1920s when women had few civil rights in Canada, pioneering women activists made their presence strongly felt in political life and achieved important early gains.

There were the Famous Five, now honoured with a statue on Parliament Hill, agitating for the vote for women, but there were many others. In the fields of politics, medicine, agriculture, trade unions and education, women like Lea Roback, Charlotte Whitton, Anna Leonowens and Emily Stowe showed everyone that it was no longer a man's world. Their stories are told in this lively book.
