The story marks the birth of the popular ‘Persons Case’ when 5 women asked the Supreme Court of Canada if the mention of ‘persons’ in Section 24 included women to be elected in the Senate. The Famous Five Monument marks one of the most popular cases of women’s right and the need for gender equality in politics.
The women- Emily Murphy, Irene Marryat Parlby, Nellie Mooney McClung, Louise Crummy McKinney and Henrietta Muir Edwards created a petition for the purpose and even though the answer was against them, the incident started a change. Visit to monument to relive the incident as you see the statues caught in action!
