Visit the Famous 5 Foundation Web Site Nellie Letitia (Mooney) McClung Suffragist, politician Photo courtesy of the National Archives of Canada (PA-030212) Nellie McClung was born in 1873 in Ontario, but her family moved to Manitoba in 1880 as pioneer homesteaders. She was a pioneer teacher, author, suffragist, social reformer, lecturer and legislator who lived in the West (Manitou, Winnipeg, Edmonton, Calgary and Victoria) until her death in 1951. A well-rounded and capable woman, her various careers cannot be described separately, as her teaching, writing and public speaking abilities all fueled her desire to improve the rights of Canadian women. This desire, combined with her true activist nature, Christian faith and sense of duty, meshed perfectly with the social and moral reform movements arising in the West in the early 1900s and produced one of Canada's great social activists. Rural life, the plight of immigrants, conditions in cities and factories, the movements for prohibition and women's suffrage, World War I, the Depression and World War II provided the historical context for Nellie, both as a writer and a social reformer. Although some call her a crusader, it is said that she was a practical and realistic leader who put words into political action. While a young mother in Manitou, she started working with the Women's Christian Temperance Union (WCTU). She founded many organizations: the Winnipeg Political Equality League, the Federated Women's Institutes of Canada and the Women's Institute of Edmonton, for which she was also the first president. She was also active in, among others, the Canadian Authors Association, the Canadian Women's Press Club, the Methodist Church of Canada and the Calgary Women's Literary Club.

Literature as Pulpit: The Christian Social Activism of Nellie L. McClung
By Randi R. Warne Nellie L. McClung (1873-1951) was an internationally celebrated feminist and social activist whose success as a platform speaker was legendary. Her earliest notoriety was achieved as a writer, and during her lengthy career she authored four novels, two novellas, three collections of short stories, a two-volume autobiography and various collections of speeches, articles and wartime writing, to a total of sixteen volumes. All this served as a "pulpit" from which McClung could preach her gospel of feminist activism and social transformation. She was convinced that God's intention for Creation was a "Fair Deal" for everyone; and that Canada, particularly the prairie West, was a perfect place to begin to bring that about. Woman suffrage, temperance and the ordination of women were keystones in the battle engaged, in contrast to contemporary stereotypes, with a wit and compelling humour that won over enemies as it delighted her allies. Literature as Pulpit explores Nellie McClung's vision of a "better world," and the impediments to it, as expressed through her novels and her feminist "tract,"

    Nellie Letitia (Mooney) McClung was born at Chatsworth, Ontario on October 20, 1873, the youngest of six children of an Irish immigrant family. When Nellie was six years old, the Mooneys moved to a homestead near Wawanesa, Manitoba. Although she was ten when she started school, Nellie earned a teaching certificate by the time she was sixteen. When she married a druggist named Robert Wesley McClung in 1896, she gave up her teaching career. While living in Manitou, Manitoba Nellie became active in the Woman’s Christian Temperance Union, a group that believed the abuse of alcohol caused unemployment, disease, poverty and immorality. In addition to campaigning to prohibit alcohol, the WCTU promoted the idea that women should be permitted to vote. McClung published her first novel

    Nellie L. McClung
    "Holy Terror" When Helen Letitia Mooney married pharmacist Wes McClung in 1896, she was already a seasoned pioneer, for, when she was six, her family had moved from Grey County in Ontario to homestead on the banks of the Souris River. Both before and after her marriage, Nellie was also a pioneer in everything to do with Women’s Rights, including campaigns for suffrage, temperance, and the decade-long, all-important Persons’ Case which finally, in the celebrated Privy Council judgement of 1929, changed the demeaning and inferior status of women as previously set down in the British North American Act.
    A dynamic lecturer, Nellie McClung was one of the few women speakers of her day who could fill Toronto’s Massey Hall. Her name appears on a plaque in Ottawa at the entrance to the Senate Chamber, with those of four other fighters for women’s suffrage who succeeded in opening the doors of the Senate to women. [Photo, courtesy The Toronto Star] Because of the difficulties and poverty associated with establishing the family farm, Nellie couldn’t begin school until she was ten, but she was a clever scholar and an eager one, and she was just 16 when she finished Normal School in Winnipeg and began teaching in a country school. As soon as she could save enough money, she returned to Winnipeg to finish the Collegiate Institute there. Always, wherever she was, she became a reforming activist in the organizations she believed in. Living in Winnipeg, and later in Edmonton, she became prominent politically for her outspoken convictions and her quick wit. She saw humour in a situation as readily as she saw corruption, and pompous politicians were one of her most frequent targets. She toured Manitoba in a mock Parliament that was a wicked satire on certain Members of the day, and the enfranchising of Manitoba women in 1916 was in no small part her victory.

    Les femmes sont des personnes! « Les femmes sont des personnes pour ce qui est des peines et des châtiments, mais non pour ce qui est des droits et des privilèges. » 1876, Décision du common law britannique L'affaire « personnes » de 1929 a abouti à une victoire qui marqua un point tournant dans la lutte des femmes pour l'égalité. Pendant huit ans des groupes avaient demandé à maintes reprises qu'une femme soit nommée au Sénat et ils avaient choisi madame la juge Emily Murphy comme candidate à ce poste. Mais trois premiers ministres successifs s'étaient vu recommander de ne pas désigner madame Murphy. On faisait valoir pour cela que les femmes n'étaient pas des « personnes remplissant les conditions requises » selon l'article 24 de l'Acte de l'Amérique du Nord Britannique et, par conséquent, n'étaient pas admissibles au Sénat.
    En 1927, madame la juge Murphy invitait quatre Albertaines jouant un rôle de premier plan - mesdames Henrietta Muir Edwards, Louise McKinney, Nellie McClung et Irene Parlby - à faire front commun avec elle pour demander des éclaircissements au gouvernement sur l'article 24. En 1928, quand la Cour suprême statua que les femmes ne remplissaient pas les conditions requises pour pouvoir faire partie du Sénat, le fameux groupe de cinq Albertaines en appela de ce jugement auprès du Comité judiciaire du Conseil privé de Grande-Bretagne (alors la plus haute cour de l'Empire britannique).

    Provenance: Cowie, Margaret C., 1886-1961 Title: Margaret Cowie fonds Dates: Physical desc.: 145 items ; 2 photographs Bio/Admin History: Born in 1886 in Simcoe County, Ontario, Margaret C. Cowie began teaching in Aberdeen Public School, located at 901 Barclay Avenue in Vancouver in November 1914. Moved to Nightingale Public School in February, 1934, was superannuated in 1946, but continued at Nightingale as a substitute until June 1948. During her career as a Grade 5-6 teacher she was instrumental in developing a Canadian Literature library within her school. She passed away in 1961. Scope/Content: The fonds consists of 141 letters written by 83 Canadian authors who received letters from the school requesting their books, a photograph, and a letter relating to their literary career. The photographs, with two exceptions, were not retained with letters and the books were placed in the school library; but the letters, many with their envelopes addressed to Miss Margaret Cowie, were passed by Margaret Cowie to a friend and eventually donated to the UBC Library. The correspondents include Marius Barbeau, Frank Burnett, Bliss Carman, Mazo de la Roche, Francis Dickie, Hubert Evans, Nellie McClung, L.M. Montgomery Macdonald, Isabel E. MacKay, Charles Mair, Emily Murphy, Charles G.D. Roberts, Constance Skinner, Robert Stead, and A.M. Stephen. Most of the letters were written between 1925 and 1928.
