Agnes Macphail website

The Agnes Macphail website with its digital collection is now available online. This is a project of the Grey Highlands Public Library. The following is the introduction to the website. I hope you will take time to look at this project that highlights a fascinating woman who played an important role in Canadian parliamentary history.

Welcome to the Agnes Macphail Website
Agnes Macphail was the first woman elected to Canadian Parliament. During her lifetime, she was a dutiful daughter and sister, a willful teenager, dedicated schoolteacher, and champion for equal rights and fair treatment for everyone. This website and the Digital Collection showcase not just her political life, but the personal side of Agnes Macphail as she lived in Grey County and explored the world at large.
