Nellie McClung

Nellie McClung was one of the most important leaders in Canada's first wave of feminism and social reform. In 1921, she was elected to the Legislative Assembly of Alberta and, in 1927, joined Emily Murphy, Irene Parlby, Louise Mckinney and Henrietta Edwards in their fight to have women declared "persons" under the law. She died in 1951 in Victoria, British Columbia.
