Each shade of Pure Anada Lip & Cheek Rouge is proudly named after a noteworthy Canadian woman:
Nellie Mclung, orator, author and reformer, was born in Ontario in 1973, but later moved to Manitoba and eventually to Alberta. Nellie’s passion was women’s suffrage, specifically the issue of the vote for women. Nellie started and was involved in many organizations, committees, leagues and clubs designed to further the cause of women’s rights. Nellie’s efforts in campaigning and convincing approach including theatrical efforts helped to reveal the absurdity of not allowing women to have a voice. Due to the persistent effort of Nellie and her colleagues, Manitoba eventually became the first province in Canada to grant women the vote and run for public office in January of 1916. Nellie understood that the First World War was a turning point in the cause of women’s suffrage given the fact that women took on jobs and responsibilities they never had before and proved themselves to be strong, capable, and valuable members of society. Nellie was one of group of five women called The Famous Five who successfully petitioned for the right of women to enter politics in Canada which is known as the Persons Case, a case that was recognized as a historic event in 1997. Nellie Mclung was named a Person of National Historic Significance by the government of Canada in 1954, was honoured along with the Famous Five with an 8-cent stamp, and was voted along with the Famous Five to be named Canada’s first “honorary senators”.
