Brunch with a Historian


Thursday, May 23rd from 9:30 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.

“Nice Women Don’t Want to Vote”

This was a retort of Manitoba Premier Sir Rodmond Roblin to Nellie McClung during a heated exchange at the Legislature in 1914. Two years later, most Manitoban women were able to vote, nice or not, making our province the first in Canada to extend voting rights to adult females. The suffrage movement in Manitoba is normally seen as quick and effective, lasting less than ten years, and ending in a win for equality. The reality is messier. The movement began in the early 1890s among settler women who were being excluded from the promises of the Canadian West and wanted to change the laws. And not ALL women got to vote, or kept the right. This presentation will show the artifacts, arguments and people behind one of the most important moments in the history of Canadian democracy.
Join us as we experience this excellent presentation from the Manitoba Museum. You’re not going to want to miss this.
