  • I read the following passage today, in a chapter describing the women's suffrage movement in Newfoundland:

    "Talk of their right to vote filled many of the hours spent in knitting and sewing 'comforts' for the soldiers overseas. The famed 'Newfoundland sock,' greatly sought after by all Allied soldiers, had in its stitches the resolve of women to get their own fair treatment."

    --Kevin Major, As Near to Heaven by Sea: A History of Newfoundland and Labrador
