Simonne Monet-Chartrand Social Network




In 1996, her son Alain Chartrand and the filmmaker Diane Cailhier released a film about her life, titled My Life Is a River (Une vie comme rivière). They also produced a television mini-series about Monet-Chartrand and her husband called Chartrand et Simonne in 2000.


Simonne Monet-Chartrand died of cancer on January 18, 1993, in Richelieu.


In 1992, she received the Prix Idola Saint-Jean for her feminist work.


Monet-Chartrand also worked as a journalist, contributing to various publications as a writer, including Châtelaine, La Vie en rose, and Les têtes de pioche. She was also a longtime writer, researcher, and presenter for Radio Canada, particularly for religious broadcasts and women’s broadcasts. Her work as a writer also included her four-volume autobiography, Ma vie comme rivière, which was originally published in 1981 and re-issued with updates in 1992. Her second book, focusing on her pacifist activism, was published in 1988 with the title L’espoir et le défi de la paix. She also wrote a two-volume history of Quebec’s women, published in 1990 and 1994.


In 1978 and 1979, Monet-Chartrand returned to her studies at Concordia University, where she also co-founded the Simone de Beauvoir Institute, a college dedicated to feminist studies. In 1979, she was a candidate for the Rhinoceros Party, a satirical political party, to represent the district of Longueuil in Parliament. She received 5 percent of the vote.


Monet-Chartrand’s activism, particularly her feminist organizing, extended internationally. She attended women’s conferences in Europe and represented the Human Rights League of Quebec at conferences in the Middle East. She organized the Peace Train’s arrival in Ottawa in 1962 to present the demands of feminist pacifists. She also held a conference to express these demands during Expo 67.


In the 1950s, Monet-Chartrand joined the labor movement, helping the wives of strikers and arguing that women should be able to participate in union contract negotiations. She was a member of the socio-political committee for the Quebec Teachers Union, and in the ’70s she worked for the teachers’ union in Champlain, Quebec.


Her activist career began with joining the Jeunesse Étudiante Chrétienne, a youth organization of the Catholic social movement, during her student years. She led the organization’s provincial-level board of directors and began to work with a number of influential activist figures, including fellow Catholic youth leader Michel Chartrand. Her upper-class family opposed her relationship with the working-class Chartrand—they temporarily sent her to Chicago in the United States in an effort to split the couple up, and three priests refused to marry them before they could find one who would agree to do so. Nevertheless, the two wed in 1942. They would go on to have seven children together and to support each other in their political activism.


After graduating high school, she attended the Université de Montréal from 1939 to 1942, where she studied literature.


Monet-Chartrand took up the cause of feminism beginning in the 1930s, fighting for women’s right to vote in Quebec, which was the last province to institute women’s suffrage. Her political involvement grew during the Conscription Crisis of 1944, and she joined the Bloc populaire, an anti-conscription political party.


Simonne Monet-Chartrand (November 4, 1919 – January 18, 1993) was a Canadian labor activist, feminist writer, and pacifist.

Simonne Monet-Chartrand was born in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, in 1919. Her parents were Aurore-Berthe Alain and Amédée Monet, who was a judge, as was her grandfather Dominique Monet. Her family was well-off, spending summers on the Richelieu River in Beloeil. She studied at a Catholic boarding school in Montreal, and began noting the inequalities between boys and girls at a young age. A dark stain on her otherwise idyllic childhood was the death of her brother Roger, of tuberculosis; Monet-Chartrand also caught the disease, but she survived thanks to a long stay in a sanatorium in the Laurentides.
