Nellie McClung

Canadian politician and social activist

Nellie Letitia McClung

There are many social activists throughout the history of the world, and most have done amazing things for their people, although Nellie is truly a much more remarkable person.


Nellie became a teacher at the age of 16 and wanted to change the traditional views of women. She soon began writing books regarding world equality issues that concerned her. She was a very inspirational writer, speaker and activist in Canadian history, and it was because of her courage, her commitment towards finding a way to equality, which lead her to success.
