On October 18th 2019, the Famous 5 Foundation will host an event to commemorate Persons Day and celebrate the 90th anniversary of the victory of the Persons Case. The victory was a pivotal moment in our history, championed by five courageous Alberta women who petitioned for the inclusion of women in the definition of the word persons – giving women the ability to own property and to be elected to public office. Open to the public and free of charge, the Famous 5 Foundation will be set up by the Famous Five Monuments in Olympic Plaza. We will have performers and speakers celebrating with us.
