Prior to 1929, women in Canada were not considered ‘Persons’—at least not in the fullest legal sense of the word.

On October 18, 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.

Open to the public and free of charge, the Famous 5 Foundation will be set up by the Famous Five Monuments in Olympic Plaza.
