            Nellie McClung grasped various
causes including but not limited to, Suffrage, Temperance, female equality and
contribution in legislative issue. She was one of the ‘Famous Five’ who fought
for Maternal Feminism. It would not be accurate to mark McClung as only a
Maternal Feminist. While the reality of matter is that she regularly evoked
women’s ethical superiority over men. She adopted different strategies at
various circumstances in her life and used both maternal feminism and universal
equality as arguments to advance the status of women. In her speeches, she
usually demonstrated her meanings with the help of describing situations in
real life. She illustrated in document, if a husband says to his wife that the
place where he lives is not clean for her wife and also told her not to clean
and asked to chose a clean place because he himself couldn’t make that place beautiful
and tidy. Do you think a woman would ever agree to him? No. May be her husband
is all right but there are some corners where he would never have a look but a
woman would never miss those places. Women have tidied up things since time started
and if they will be clearing out if pigeons gap and overlooked corners. It
would be better to give a chance  to women
to prove them up.

The given document, “In Times like These, 1915” is written by Nellie
McClung. It is about how the famous activist, Nellie McClung stood for women’s
right to vote and women’s equality with other Gender. During the times of late
19th century and early 20th century, Women had no right
to vote and were not allowed to engage in any political issues, because Men thought
that they were too dirty for women. In other words, Men were superior than
women in those times. Women were supposed to stay at home and take care of
children and household. But Nellie McClung was against all this inequality. In
her words, “A woman’s place is in the home; and out of it whenever she is called
to guard those, she love and to improve conditions for them.”1
