The Ideas of Sophia Dixon
Hamm, Elaine Orvedahl
Sophia Dixon is a Danish immigrant to Canada who became a Woman President of the Uni ted Farmers of Canada (Saskatchewan Section). Because she filled this office when the organization was going into politics, Dixon was involved with the beginning of the C.C.F. She was always idealistic and thoughtful, earning herself a reputation as a philosopher for her ideas. Her ideas sometimes reflect the era she lived in, and sometimes seem advanced. Her experiences in the decades after women received the vote taught her that women are vulnerable living by men's rules and underlined for her the need to change the rules by which society operates .
