100 Years of the Women's Vote

Apr 22, 01:40 PM

The year, 2018, marks one hundred years since women in Canada were first allowed to vote in a federal election. It was a hard won victory - the result of years of tireless campaigning.

Joan Sangster tells the story of that fight in her new book, "One Hundred Years of Struggle: The History of Women and the Vote in Canada."

She joined Russell Bowers to reflect on the history and what is still left to do.
