A Women’s Parliament

Today Resa and I unveil post #2 of Nellie McClung week. Please head to the original post at Resa’s Graffiti Lux and Murals blog to see the Winnipeg mural of Nellie and her fellow suffragists, which has been photographed so well by Resa. Learn about the history of women’s rights in Canada and more. Thank you Resa for being such a great partner in this week-long collaboration! Our third post will publish Friday at When Women Inspire. ♥

  1. It is a lovely mural! It reminds me of watching “Heritage Minutes” when I was a kid. There was one about Nellie McClung, I believe, on how she finally triumphed and totally burned the PM :)

  2. A wonderful collaboration, Christy, between yourself and Resa; bringing with it very important issues that continue to face the world of to-day. Slowly, equality between the sexes, in some parts of our world, has a great foot-hold; though, it is only by constant monitoring and lobbying that keeps the momentum progressing forward.
    Well done to both of you…

    1. TY, Carolyn. Your intellect and support mean everything. It’s so exciting collaborating with Christy. Now, I’m looking for women’s murals and Street Art everywhere I go, and OMG, I think I saw a Queen Victoria piece today! I would have got off the street car, but it’s snowing and -17C. … Yes, I was rugged up! xo

    1. We’re so glad to have you here! By learning about the determined women of the past, hopefully females now and in the future will keep fighting for what they believe in xx

    1. Thank you Shey for appreciating the posts from Resa and I in honor of Nellie McClung. We’re on Cloud 9 with the support we’re receiving for the series. It is so nice you made time here! xx

    1. Ohhh it has been the focus for Resa and I for a while now and we’re so pleased with the responses, including this one from you! Hugging back ~ you know it :)

  3. Amazing :star: Wonderful mural with such an empowering meaning and History behind it!. Great project (and results!), Chris & Resa. Love & hugs across the miles! :star:

    1. Yes, “empowering” is a great word and you’ve used it here in such a way that I’m beaming right now ~ I’m sure Resa is too :) Thank you for being a shining star!!

  4. This is so exciting! I can’t think of a better home for “Nellie Week” than here on “When Women Inspire”!
    Christy, it is so fab working with you! <3 <3
    (Hope I find another special mural)

    1. Oh sweet friend, the pleasure is all mine <3 This week of Nellie is divine xx Yes, who knows what murals you might happen upon next?!!

    1. Yes! It seems so much easier most times to give up but if everyone did so, well, it would be quite the state of the world right now. Thank you for being here xx
