Votes For Women!

Today is the 100th anniversary of the Province of Manitoba becoming the first jurisdiction in Canada to approve the extension of the franchise to women.  This was the result of a brilliant campaign run by Nellie McClung, Cora Hind, Lillian Beynon, Mary Crawford and so many others.

Brava to the ladies!
