BONUS: discover three notable Canadian women in honour of International Women's Day!

International Women's Day is celebrated each year on March 8. The tradition goes back to 1909 in the United States, and became an international observance after women in Russia gained sufferage in 1917.

In honour of International Women's Day, here are some notable Canadian women you may not be aware of:

Emily Carr

This artist and writer was born in Victoria, BC in 1871, and is known for her nature paintings in the Modernist and Post-Impressionist styles. Her work depicting the anture of her native BC, and heavily inspired by the Indigenous peoples in the area, was only recognized late in her life. She died March 7, 1945 at the age of 73.

Gabrielle Roy

This Quebec woman spent much of her life in what was, at the time, the working-class neighbourhood of Saint-Henri. Her novel Bonheur d'occasion is an absolute classic of Québécois litterature, and its title is even laid into the brick work of Place-Saint-Henri metro station. The novel, published in 1945, is widely considered to have laid the ground work for Quebec's Révolution tranquille (Quiet Revolution) of the 1960s.

Nellie Letitia McClung

This politician, author and activist was a key figure in the "Valliant Five", a West-Canadian group of women that launched the "Persons Case", a legal battle that led to the recognition of women as "qualified persons" that could sit in the Senate.
