To Be Equals in Our Own Country

Women and the Vote in Quebec

"When the history of suffrage is written, the role played by our politicians will cut a sad figure beside that of the women they insulted." Speaking in 1935, feminist Idola SaintJean captured the bitter nature of Quebec women's prolonged fight for the right to vote. To Be Equals in Our Own Country is a passionate yet evenhanded account of the road to suffrage in Quebec, examining women's political participation since winning the vote in 1940 and comparing their struggle to movements in other countries. This astute exploration of enfranchisement rightly recognizes suffrage as a fundamental question of human rights.
