6 Should women be allowed to vote?

7 Women gained new employment and economic opportunities during World War One because of the demand for workers. After the war all that changed. Most women were pushed out of their factory jobs by returning soldiers. Women were expected to go back to the home and remain home makers. However, woman received the vote during this time, which would finally give women political power to help shape our nation.

8 The idea of Woman’s Suffrage (getting the vote) had been a political debate for decades leading up to WWI. As early as 1912, women in Manitoba were fiercely questioning why they were not allowed to vote. Leaders like Nellie McClung got her political start during this time period. On January 28, 1916, Manitoba was the first province to allow female voters in provincial elections. Nellie McClung

10 “Women who set a low value on themselves make life hard for all women.” Nellie McClung  She was born on October 20, 1873 in Chatsworth, Ontario.  She was one of The Famous Five, with Irene Parlby, Henrietta Muir Edwards, Emily Murphy and Louise McKinney.  She was the main force behind getting women the vote in Manitoba (first province in Canada to do so).

11 “Women who set a low value on themselves make life hard for all women.” Nellie McClung  In 1921 she was elected to the Alberta legislative assembly in the riding of Edmonton.  She was a main contributor in the Persons Case which established the status of women as persons under the BNA Act in 1929.  Not only was she a woman’s activist and politician, but she was also a best selling author, lecturer and journalist.

12 The Military Voters Act of 1917 gave the vote to British women who were war widows or had sons or husbands serving overseas. Robert Borden promised equal suffrage for women. After his victory in the following election, he introduced a bill in 1918 for extending the vote to women. The bill passed without problems. However, Quebec excluded themselves from this bill, and women in Quebec didn’t receive the vote until 1940.
