Author Bio for McClung, Nellie Letitia

Author Image

Nellie McClung (1873-1951) was a Canadian author, social activist and politician. Born Nellie Letitia Mooney in Ontario, her family move to Manitoba in 1878 to take up farming. She attended Winnipeg's Normal School and began teaching herself in rural Manitoba. An avid reader of fiction, she aspired to write stories about her life amidst country-people where she grew up. In addition to raising a family, participating in temperance and suffrage movements, she wrote a book "Sowing Seeds in Danny" which was published in 1908 and sold over 100,000 copies. The income she received from her writing helped finance her political achievements. She was a prominent member of Winnipeg's Political Equality League and the Women's Press Club. She was a front-line campaigner in Manitoba elections that led to the enfranchisement of women in 1916. A family relocation to Alberta in 1914 gave her a chance to be elected to the Alberta legislature and she was elected in 1921. She was one of the 'famous five' women who sponsored the successful Persons Case allowing women to sit as Canadian senators. Her writing career led to the publishing of sixteen books and many articles in newspapers and magazines. (Oxford Companion to Canadian Literature)
