Women are Persons
Women are Persons Too is a bronze sculpture located in the grounds of Ottawa's Parliament Buildings, on the Parliament Hill. The sculpture by the Canadian sculptor Barbara Paterson, was unveiled in 2000. The sculpture commemorates a historic case from 1928 which led to Canadian women being recognised as "persons"and thus being eligible to be named to the Senate. This became known as the case of 'Famous Five' (the five were Emily Murphy, Irene Parlby, Louise McKinney, Henrietta Muir Edwards and Nellie Mcclung). The Supreme Court of Canada rejected their case in but the Judicial Committee of the British Privy Council decided in their favour on October 18, 1929.
