Famous 5 Foundation: 90th Anniversary of Persons Day
October 18, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree
On October 18, 1929, the Privy Council of England rendered its decision that women are indeed “persons” — overruling a Supreme Court of Canada verdict to the opposite effect. Today, the Famous 5’s historic work lobbying for this is honoured and continued by the Famous 5 Foundation. On the event’s 90th anniversary the foundation invites the public to gather at the Famous 5 monument at Olympic Plaza to recognize the occasion.
