One Hundred Years of Struggle – Joan Sangster

One Hundred Years of Struggle

The History of Women and the Vote in Canada

What an insightful discussion with historian Joan Sangster about her new book, One Hundred Years of Struggle: The History of Women and the Vote in Canada. May 24th marked the first 100 years of women’s right to vote federally in Canada. Very interesting to note the polarization and at times coalitions between various ideology within the movement. Thanks to their collective efforts, today, much has changed but in many ways there are other points that remain the same, namely; the struggle for equality included gains and losses, and inclusions and exclusions, depending of a woman’s race, class and location. A must read for your book list.
