Baby Leggings // Marie Gérin-Lajoie, Idola St-Jean, Thérèse Casgrain, Claire Kirkland-Casgrain

Baby Leggings

It is thanks to feminists like Marie Gérin-Lajoie, Idola St-Jean et Thérèse Casgrain that in 1940 Quebecois women obtained the right to vote at the provincial level. However its not until 1961 that Claire Kirkland-Casgrain becomes the first woman elected to Quebec’s National Assembly. Their tireless work forced the government of Quebec to adopt in 1964 a law to end the legal incapacity of married women. In other words married women could now exercise their rights or bring legal proceedings by themselves. They could thereby open bank accounts, get loans, sign contracts without their husband’s signature. If they are married under the community property regime, they can now inherit the family patrimony. The new law also allows them to enjoy certain freedoms within marriage, including that of exercising a profession without the permission of their husband.*
