Comment on back cover:  “Constance and Nancy Backhouse have given new life to this extraordinary story of a woman, raised in the elite society of Ontario, who represented herself in a bitter legal battle and became the first woman to argue before the Privy Council in London.  The authors’ meticulous and thoughtful treatment of Mrs. Campbell’s first-person account brings out multiple layers of insight on the legal profession, gender boundaries, and the fate of self-represented litigants.”
