About Women's History Month

Women's History Month is a celebration of the contributions of women to Canadian society and recognition of the achievements of women from all walks of life as a vital part of our heritage.

This is an opportunity to highlight how we benefit from the achievements of our foremothers in the quest for women’s equality. 

Women Are Persons

The ‘Famous Five’:  Irene Parlby, Louise McKinney, Emily Murphy, Henrietta Edwards and Nellie McClung won the right for women to serve in the Senate and paved the way for women to participate in other aspects of public life.  Their legal quest reached the British Privy Council, which pronounced women as ‘persons’ on October 18, 1929.
