DR. EMILY HOWARD STOWE

The Walrus - - FRONT PAGE -

An ad­vo­cate for women’s rights and one of Canada’s first fe­male doc­tors, Stowe be­lieved women hav­ing the right to vote would give them a chance at bet­ter ed­u­ca­tion and em­ploy­ment. She founded the Toronto Women’s Lit­er­ary Club in 1876 (later re­named the Cana­dian Women’s Suf­frage As­so­ci­a­tion) to fight for ac­cess to higher ed­u­ca­tion and bet­ter work­ing con­di­tions.
