"In 1876, a group of women lead by Canada's first female medical doctor, Dr. Emily Howard Stowe, gathered together as the Toronto Women's Literary Club. The Literary Club decided that women needed status and rights if they want ed to create a better society. During it's first meeting, the club discussed gaining women's rights to vote, and voila! They became the first Canadian women's suffrage society. The organization advocated for important and significant changes to education and social policy, especially the ones that effected women. It took them more than forty years for women to gain the right to vote, but they did make it happen. The persistent and patient work of the member of the club did not cause quick, revolutionary changes, but it did spark and catch the attention of the public and remind the public about women's issue."
