Transcript of Women's Rights
Before Oct. 18, 1929, women in Canada were not legally considered to be persons.
A few years after women in Alberta gained the right to vote, McClung was elected to the Alberta Legislature where she served from 1921-1926.
Nellie McClung, Henrietta Edwards, Louise McKinney, Emily Murphy, Irene Parlby, were five women that pushed the idea for women to vote.
1921 was the first year women were allowed to vote in federal elections. This did not include aboriginals or any none european women. In that time era women were not considered "persons". Women could not own any land. If they had a job all the money they made had to go to their husband. Women couldn't vote, women then didn't have a lot of say then. If women were being mistreated by there husbands they couldn't get a divorce.
