Nellie became the liberal of the united farmers of Alberta in 1921, She stood by there side for 5 years and then joined Irene Parbly who was cabinet minister. They went on many different cases of social legislation.
11: Father | Nellie was defeated in 1926, she never returned to social politics again, In 1939 she became the delegation of the league of nations. One day she was on a case with judge Emily Murphy to make women persons. She died at the age of 78 in Victoria British Columbia on September1st 1951.
12: If Women were not claimed to be persons? When women were not considered persons the women would be stuck at home cleaning and feeding the children and husband. The wife had to serve the husband because he was the master of the house. The Canadian women thank five amazing women that gave them all these rights. Emily Murphy was the first women in the British empire to be judge and she was never a person, so she fought for that right to make women persons. She did this for all the women and herself because when she was traveling with her husband he left her and she had no legal recourse. she worked hard fo him and put a lot of effort in taking care of the family farm 18 years of effort that she will not get back.
13: What would it be like if men worked at the house and the women did not? If the women were the ones that worked and the men had to clean the house,would the men have people like the famous five that would make men persons and make men be able to keep their jobs when they got married. Or would someone else of made the dower law instead of the famous five. What would it be like today if life was like that for the women and how would this affect the men?
14: Louse's first election were for women to be given the right to vote or run for office. Louise wanted to band liquor and smoking from Alberta, she was successful until someone said 'Other country's can drink why can't we" and so all of her work that she did to band liquor was ruined. On January 23,1930, there was a victorious lunch for only women to attend in honor of what the famous five had done for the women. When it was her turn to speak she called on women to dream big and honorably. | Louise McKinny
16: Emily Murphy | Emily Murphy was the one that was determined to make sure that women got 50% of the property. She was born in 1968. When she and her family moved to Alberta in 1903 she began a campaign to see that women get half of the of the property. She was the one that let women today get one third of the property. She and a group of women wanted to follow a trial of Edmonton prostitutes but were kicked out. She became the first women police magistrate in the British Empire.
18: What would life be like if there was no dower law | If there was no dower law than life would be horrible for the women. If the women got a divorce or if the men leave them they would have nothing. Because without the dower law the women would not have any money to start off with to start there new life. The women would also be left at home and have to work at the farm, make the bread and worse themselves and the kids would belong to the husband.
