The Famous 5 Foundation

 

famou5 PillowsPrior to 1929, Canada's constitution said that only “qualified persons"—meaning men only—could be appointed to the Senate. It was in that year that five courageous and idealistic Canadian women stepped onto the world stage to challenge these antiquated laws and conventions. By insisting that women be officially recognized as persons in the fullest legal sense of the word the “Famous Five", as they became known, set a stirring example of leadership that altered all Commonwealth nations' laws and, with it, the course of history.

 

Today, the Famous 5 Foundation works to ensure the legacy of the Famous Five is known, and celebrated. In their spirit, we also honour today's female trailblazers and work to inspire and empower future generations of leaders.
