The Last Suffragist Standing is an unprecedented study of a pioneering Canadian suffragist and politician, a New Woman who tested Canadian democracy.

A rich product of archival and public sources, this biography of Laura Marshall Jamieson (1882-1964) opens a window onto the political and social landscape of the time. Veronica Strong-Boag chronicles Jamieson's life from orphaned child of marginal Ontario farmers to member of British Columbia's Legislative Assembly and Vancouver city councillor. The last suffragist in Canada to be elected to a provincial or federal legislature, Jamieson embraced issues such as factory labour conditions, minimum wage, feminist pacifism, housing, municipal franchise, employment equality, and internationalism throughout six decades of activism.

Strong-Boag's meticulous research and deep knowledge of the history of the women's movement and Canadian politics turn this compelling account of a woman's life into an illuminating work on the history of feminism, socialism, internationalism, and activism in Canada.
