19 ottob 1929 anni - The Famous Five and The Persons Case (Social)

Descrizione:

In the British North America Act of 1867, it stated that when talking about more than one person, you would say "persons", and when talking to one person, you would say "he". A lot of people started arguing that the act meant only men could be "persons". This is how the Famous Five came to life. The Famous Five (Emily Murphy, Irene Parbly, Nellie McClung, Henrietta Edwards and Louise McKinney) were women activists that took the "persons" issue to the Privy Council of England. On October 19, 1929, the Privy Council of England decided that the word "person" referred to women and men alike. This was significant for Canada because the Famous Five inspired women arounf the world.
