Description

First published in 1926, Madge Macbeth’s Shackles is a controversial novel that examines the power dynamics of early Canadian feminism. The book exposes the struggles of middle-class Naomi Lennox between 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 expose 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 edition will include a new introduction by Notes from a Feminist Killjoy author and CWILA chair Erin Wunker.
