“On the Road to Extinction”
Keywords:Emily Murphy, Western Canada, right to vote, settler colonialism, women
Author Emily (Ferguson) Murphy wrote under the pen name “Janey Canuck” and she was a well-published author and journalist before she moved to Edmonton in 1907. It was here that she became most active in her work for the cause of settler women’s legal and political rights. Emily Murphy’s hopes for the West rested on the achievement of votes and personhood for settler women and the triumph of settler colonialism.
