I think I’d look good in a dress?

Before you realize that it might be difficult to sleep tonight for fear of that image creeping into your dreams… I am considering playing the character of the fearless, steadfast, suffragette,  Nellie McClung.  She was a writer, a wife and a mother.  Eventually in 1921 she was elected to the Legislature of Manitoba.

Fifteen years before women were legally “persons” under the law, (1929) Nellie fought tirelessly for the right of women to have the vote. She took on Manitoba Premier Sir Rodmond Roblin in a battle of wills that included her organization, The Political Equality League staging a mock parliament where she argued about the absurdity of what might happen if men were allowed to vote.  All this after being told, "Nice women don’t want the vote.” Many men and women of the time, were not pleased that a Lady should be so forward as to stand up against the status-quo set by the men in government. In fact, She received so much mail about the issue that she decided to respond in true Nellie McClung style, saying, “I wish you could see the proportion of my mail that tells me to go home and darn my husbands socks.  I never would have believed one man’s hosiery  could excite the amount of interest those socks do!”

She was also a fierce believer in the temperance movement taking hold across Canada at that time. This is a wonderful Canadian female role model. I would love to do her justice. I’m also happy she won the suffrage battle and not the temperance one.

Can I simply say what a relief to discover someone who truly understands what they are talking about online. You certainly understand how to bring a problem to light and make it important. More people need to read this and understand this side of your story. It's surprising you are not more popular because you certainly have the gift.

Becoming a Strong woman is a process. There are a lot of things you will encounter along the way. Those are the things that will help you be someone you don't anticipate that you'll be. Of course, nothing comes easy, challenges are given along it, it's on you how you will handle it and confront it. Yes along the process we will make bad decisions but not enough reason for you to give up. Life will bring you down, but never forget that it's only part of it. The important affair in life is not about how many times you fall or fail, but the times you stand up in every fall.
