It’s a charming, larger than life sculpture of 5 women who were dedicated to ensuring women could have a voice in our government. In 1929 women were officially recognized as persons under the law. Seems ridiculous to think there was a time we weren’t persons,...More

Great monument of the famous five on the grounds of Parliament Hill. Every Canadian should visit the Hill at least once and just have a look around and learn something about your country.
