Women Fight for Sufferage - And Win

Years of dedicated and patient political action surge in 1918 when 5 provinces and counting change laws to allow women the vote.
Though delayed by conscription, the feds soon follow with various legal changes that grant the vote to some classes of women particularly involved with the war effort. Impressed after witnessing the way women
behaved during that effort, Prime Minister Robert Borden, 3 days upon re-election introduced a bill granting uniform voting rights to all Canadian women.
A flag of freedom was planted that day around which all Canadians have rallied ever since...then came the militant feminists with their entitled shrillness.
Social Justice is a cottage industry and gender bias grew to join other political businesses. Old allies began to find themselves on opposite sides of emerging issues. The subtle line between advocacy, and supremacy has since become blurred. Many can't tell the difference anymore between genuine inequities and feeding the justice machines past injustices once justified.
For those like Christina Hoff Sommers, who were part of the original civil rights movements for women's rights in the U.S. the sudden impact of regressive slime may have been an awakening. When the happening in April, 2015 affectionately referred to as Trigglypuff occurred at UMass many of the apologists on the progressive side of the left had a sober second thought. Perhaps they had picked the wrong side. Perhaps they had become drunk on the zealous overreach of virtue signalling.
