Hyena in Petticoats Read & Download Ó PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Urcefulness and helped make a better world for women and girlsIn the first frames of this brilliant graphic biography Willow Dawson plunges readers into the rugged world of Canada's western pioneers. Reason for Reading Author Monica Kulling recommended this on her FB page and I m always up for Canadian biographicalhistorical graphicsA well written and engaging story concentrating on Nellie McClung the crusader the suffragette and fighter for women s rights It tells her story from childhood on through until her death This is not her entire story nor a full biography but one that focuses on the woman who is hailed as a hero of feminism and women s rights The book does this job well and presents an interesting story making Nellie out to be a hero for women today Some important aspects of her life and beliefs are left out though because they are not of the type political correctness wants us to remember about this woman First her Christian Baptist beliefs were very strong and the guiding force behind her activism This is mentioned in the afterword but not a part of the biography at all Also Ms McClung was a strong supporter of eugenics This again was never mentioned in the biography and is only mentioned in a non judgemental sentence in the afterword Unfortunately this vile practice Eugenics was well supported at this time in history was imposed by law in Alberta until the 1970s was the major part of Hitler s plan for a master race and again is a favoured ideology through the abortion of Down s Syndrome Children and AfricanThird World children Having read Dawson s other graphic novel I am still not a fan of her facial drawings but they are suited to this period piece than to the contemporary Lila and Ecco Here they fit in with an overall Art Deco feeling Overall an enjoyable bio for what it is trying to do but I would prefer a balanced approach with the whole true story without it trying to fit a suare peg into a round hole
