Canadian History: Suffragettes, the Famous Five and First-Wave Feminism

Average rating:4.9Number of reviews:(1,380)
Voting today is seen as a universal right, but it hasn't always been this way. Come and explore the way that Suffragettes fought for the right to vote and run for office in the 1910s and 20s in Canada.

Class experience

In addition to studying sociology in university, I took as many history and women's studies courses as I possibly could. My whole life I've been fascinated by the historical fight of my ancestors for equality. I'm particularly passionate about suffrage and feminism, and the way that women fought for the right to vote. 
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Please note : First-Wave feminists and the Famous Five were not fighting for the right to vote for all women. Unfortunately, they were concerned with upper and middle class white women. This is a huge problem with the first wave of Feminism and one that continues to be fought for. 

It should also be known that one of the Famous Five, Nellie McClung, has recently come under scrutiny and criticism for her beliefs in eugenics. While this class will not be delving into the horrors of eugenics theory, policies and beliefs, it may briefly be brought up as we discuss why first-wave feminists were not inclusive to all people regardless of race, age, social status, etc. This class does not endorse the exclusive and limited view of eugenics and I will make it clear to students if it comes up that this was a horrible and unfounded theory.
