The Famous 5 became well-known for their political achievements, but also for their writing. Emily Murphy and Nellie McClung wrote several books and magazine articles about life in the Canadian west and social problems of their times. Each of the Famous 5 also wrote many letters and editorials and delivered many public speeches. In addition, authors and reporters have shared their own and others' experiences with these women and their times. These first-hand impressions bring to light the conventions, stereotypes, hardships and dreams so many women in western Canada shared.


Here we present excerpts from these people's writing and voices. The Heritage Community Foundation gratefully acknowledges the support of each publisher who has allowed us to reproduce these excerpts.
