Is It Just?

SMITH, Minnie

Regular price $125.00 Sale

A classic Canadian feminist novel about life in early 20th-century British Columbia. Minnie Smith (ca. 1875-1933) provides a harsh critique of the injustices perpetuated by male-dominated society and law. "Is It Just" tells the tragic story of Mary Pierce, who, through the actions of her selfish and lazy husband, loses her land, her social standing, and ultimately her life. Smith chose literature as a means to expand the social, political, and legal rights of women. Watters p. 395.
