TIMMINS MUSEUM: “Nice Women Don’t Want the Vote” was a phrase attributed to Manitoba’s Premier Sir Rodmond Roblin during a heated exchange with suffragist Nellie McClung. Now it’s the title of an exhibit developed by The Manitoba Museum which outlines the historical context of the Suffragist movement and commemorates the 100th anniversary of (most) women in Manitoba winning the right to vote. The exhibit is currently being shown at the Timmins Museum and will be on display until Nov. 30.
