Joséphine MARCHAND (1861-1925)


Joséphine was born into what could be considered the “privileged” class for French-Canadians of the day. Her father was a lawyer and well-known journalist; but she, as a female born in 1861, was expected to become a wife and mother. Yet, inheriting a love of literature and the ability to write from her father, she did not allow this talent go to waste. She married Raoul DANDURAND (lawyer, politician) and gave free reign to her capabilities under the name of Joséphine DANDURAND. She became a journalist, writer, lecturer as well as a feminist and activist. She died at a young age (1925-03-02) in Montréal and is buried at Notre-Dame-des-neiges Cemetery in that city.
