Did Nellie McClung become part of the government.In what position?

Yes she was part of the government. See below: In addition to publishing sixteen volumes of work, including novels, fiction, essays, autobiographies and speeches, Nellie McClung was also an influential activist for labour issues, workers' rights, women's suffrage, and married women's property rights. In 1921, she was elected to Alberta's legislature and fought for women's rights and prohibition. When, in 1928, the Supreme Court of Canada unanimously decided against women holding public office on the grounds that they were not "persons," McClung and four other women (known as "The Famous Five") fought what was to be known as "The Persons Case" all the way to the Privy Council in Britain. In 1929, the Privy Council reversed this decision and called women's exclusion from public office "a relic of days more barbarous than ours" ( qtd in Canadian Encyclopedia, Vol. 3, p 1645). McClung was also active in organizations such as the Winnipeg Political Equality League, the Canadian Women's Press Club as well as suffrage and temperence organizations in Alberta. She was served as the first woman member of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation from 1936-1942 and represented Canada as a delegate for the League of Nations in 1938.
