Week 2 Lecture Notes

Three Phases to the Vote World War I and Feminist Activism***
1. 1917 Military Voter’s Act: women nurses serving in the war.
2. 1917 Wartime Elections Act: franchise to the wives, widows, mothers, sisters, and
daughters of those alive or deceased, who had served or were serving in the Canadian or
British Military or naval force.
3. 1918 Women’s Franchise Act: passage of the federal enfranchisement to women who
were over the age of 21 and British Subjects, and who possessed the same qualifications
as men required for the provincial franchise.
Major Achievements of First Wave Feminists
We owe five key rights to first wave feminist:
1. Enfranchisement.
2. Access to higher education.
3. Property rights.
4. Guardianship over our children.
5. The right to divorce.*
Criticisms of First Wave Feminism
Tended to be a white, middle class movement.
Focus was on achieving rights for particular groups of women (those with some
race/class privilege).
Often intolerant of ‘unacceptable’ feminine behaviour.
Capitalism was not thoroughly interrogated as part of the problem obvious sexism was
the focus.
Union movement was not as open to womendifficult for working class women to
organize.
