    As shocking as it may be women were once not considered people. A women named Emily Murphy and 4 other women, wanted to know if Emily Murphy could run for senate. Which resulted in them asking a judge, who said "Woman were not persons in the matter of rights and privileges" in other words no. But they decided to test that law using the BNA act. In the end we got to be considered persons. In 1930 we had our first female senator, Cairine Wilson. Image of: Emily Murphy Image source: Activity 6

Things got better in 1926 when traditional raw materials increased. Allowing the farmers to do their jobs and there was a better market for traditional resources.
