This International Women’s Day, meet #150BoldWomen 


What makes a woman “bold”? What makes her an inspiration, a trailblazer, a BOSS? For 150 years Canadian women have been killin’ it in science, human rights, healthcare, defence, sport, politics and, oh that’s right: everything else. Regardless their heritage or social standing, bold women have contributed enormously to our nation’s history, and promising future.


For too long history books have been just that: HIStory. Despite the numbers of influential women and the scale of their achievements, our national story is flooded with the names and faces of great men.

Fair? No. Predictable? Maybe. Changeable? Well whaddya think we’re doing here?

In honour of the #BeBoldForChange theme this International Women’s Day, the Famous 5 Foundation proudly presents 150 Bold Women. May we celebrate their victories, validate their impacts and inspire others to act like the baddest, boldest women they can be.
