My daughter loves coming here and posing with these statues, and every time we talk about how important their fight was and what they sacrificed and achieved. I love this place!

The statues and what they represent are nice, you can take funny pictures there and since it's on the side of the parliament is part of the must see in old Ottawa.

A larger than life monument to a special point in history for woman, the Valiant five are captured in statue form near the parliament building to celebrate their success as step one on a long road, well worth a stop.

Small monument near the Parliament building, and I nearly missed it. Nice to see the backgrounds fleshed out and why these women are recognised. Certainly worth a visit in today’s age.
