"Nellie Letitia McClung (1873-1951) is recognized as a key figure in Canadian history as well as Canadian literature. Her two-volume autobiography provides a remarkable and very readable account of a truly extraordinary life. McClung is best known for her involvement in the 1929 "Person's Case," in which the British Privy Council ruled in favour of an appeal by the "Famous Five" against the judgement of the Supreme Court of Canada that women did not qualify legally as persons. McClung had, however, been a high profile figure, as a suffragist, politician, and writer, in Canadian politics and literature for many years and remained so well into the 1940s. Her autobiography provides unique insight into Canadian public affairs in the first half of the twentieth century. Equally interesting are McClung's accounts of her early days as a child, teacher, and young wife and mother. With her fine eye for detail, she makes the Canada of her time come vividly alive for readers." "Originally published in two volumes, McClung's autobiographies found a wide audience from their first publication in 1935 and 1945. They have never before been available in a single volume. For this re-issue Veronica Strong-Boag and Michelle Lynn Rosa have written a substantial introduction and added explanatory notes that illuminate the woman and the historical context for modern readers."--BOOK JACKET.

Stories subversive : through the field with gloves off : short fiction by Nellie L McClung ( Book )
3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 165 libraries worldwide
First-wave feminist, activist and social reformer, Nellie McClung ranked as one of the most popular Canadian authors and among the liveliest critics of Canada's male-dominated society of the early 1900s. Well ahead of her time, McClung was known as a writer who dared to discuss taboo topics, and for her inimitable humour which rivals that of Stephen Leacock, Canada's best-known humourist. This selection of her best short fiction includes depictions of difficult rural living conditions in Western Canada as well as "consciousness-raising" stories reflecting the undue restrictions on women and the anti-female laws and attitudes of the day. While most were published in U.S. and Canadian magazines between 1906 and 1931, a few of these stories appear here for the first time. In addition, a detailed introduction discusses McClung's life and analyses the themes and stylistic touches of each of the stories making up this unique anthology.
