Description

First published in 1926, Madge Macbeth's Shackles exposes the struggles of middle-class protagonist Naomi Lennox in her role as dutiful wife to unambitious and proper Arthur and her desire for acceptance of her writing career. Filled with dialogue and debate that exposes early twentieth century limitations and opportunities for both women and men, Shackles is a colourful and surprising depiction of first-wave feminism in Canada. This reissue will include a new introduction by Notes from a Feminist Killjoy author and CWILA chair Erin Wunker.
