HYENA IN PETTICOATS
THE STORY OF SUFFRAGETTE NELLIE MCCLUNG
Nellie McClung made an indelible mark on Canada. She was the author of eighteen books, a political activist and social reformer. In every role she played, she demonstrated unfailing courage, wit and resourcefulness, and helped make a better world for women and girls.
In the first frames of this brilliant graphic biography, Willow Dawson plunges readers into the rugged world of Canada's western pioneers, taking us into the early life of McClung as the child of homesteaders, and follows her on her path to becoming a teacher, a crusader, a suffragette and eventually the first female Member of Parliament.
Willow Dawson grew up in Vancouver and now resides in Toronto, Ontario. She graduated with honours from the Ontario College of Art and Design and works as an illustrator and cartoonist for various clients, including Metaviews, Jesse Hirsh, YWCA Canada, OwlKids Magazine, Kids Can Press, Top Shelf Comics, Penguin Canada, McGraw-Hill Ryerson Ltd., LGBTQ Parenting Network, Shameless Magazine, Sumach Press, and Kiss Machine.
