Agnes Macphail and the Politics of Equality by Terry Crowley

Agnes Macphail, Canada s first woman MP, is a heroine for our times: an accomplished politician, committed feminist and a complex, well-rounded human being. <BR>A democratic populist who emerged politically during the post-World War One farmers revolt, Macphail helped build the alliance that became the CCF, ending two-party domination of national political life. She later served the CCF as Ontario s first woman MPP.In all her activities Macphail was an outspoken advocate of equality and human rights, working tirelessly to win recognition of women s rights, to reform the penal system and to secure international peace. Strong convictions, openness to new ideas and devotion to democratic values were Maphail s distinguishing characteristics. <BR>Agnes MacPhail and the Politics of Equality recounts the career of a Canadian political pioneer, while simultaneously presenting twentieth-century Canadian history from a woman s perspective
