Famous Canadian Women

Right IconThis ranking is based on an algorithm that combines various factors, including the votes of our users and search trends on the internet.

Canada is a country with a diverse population; it is an amalgamation of people from different cultures, races and ethnicities. Thus the Canadian woman just cannot be fitted into any boring stereotypes! Women in Canada were traditionally just expected to be wives and mothers, happily fulfilling their domestic responsibilities without nurturing any ambitions that needed them to cross the threshold. But with the advent of feminism in Canada during the 18th and 19th centuries, women began to question the limitations forced upon them and struggled hard to build their own separate identities. Adelaide Hoodless was a pioneer in women’s education and a social activist while Nellie Letitia McClung was a major figure in the Canadian suffrage movement. Once upon a time Canada had ridiculous rules regarding birth control and abortion and the lady doctor Elizabeth Bagshaw was pivotal in bringing about a change in the country’s attitude towards women’s reproductive health. Roberta Bondar is another one of the inspiring women from Canada—she is the first Canadian women to journey into space, setting a precedent for other female astronauts to follow.
