Our Voices Must Be Heard

Women and the Vote in Ontario

In 1844, seven widows dared to cast ballots in an election in Canada West, a display of feminist effrontery that was quickly punished: women were legally prohibited from voting, and it would be seven decades before most would regain the right to vote in Ontario. Our Voices Must Be Heard explores Ontario's suffrage history, examining its ideals and failings, its daring supporters and thunderous enemies, and its blind spots on matters of race and class. It looks at how and why suffragists from around the province joined an international movement they called "the great cause."
