Jessie Georgina (J.G.) Sime was a Scottish-born writer, lecturer, essayist and social activist, who spent the majority of her adult life living in Canada. She served as Québec vice president of the Canadian Women's Press Club, president of the Montréal branch of the Canadian Authors' Association and secretary of the Montréal PEN Club.
Born in 1868, she was the daughter of James Sime and Jessie Aitken Wilson. After attending Queen's College in London, she worked as a journalist and became involved in the women's movement. She moved to Montreal in 1907 and may have lived in England after World War II, although Montreal was given as her residence on her death certificate.
