Political discourse on Parliament Hill, by Barbara Paterson 2000.

The Famous Five, this sculpture is called "Women are Persons!" is a tribute to Nellie McClung, Irene Parlby, Emily Murphy, Louise McKinney and Henrietta Muir Edwards. Known as the Famous Five, these women won the "Persons" Case, a 1929 court ruling which legally declared women as persons under the British North America Act and made them eligible for appointment to the Canadian Senate.

This large sculpture, (here shown only I.Parlby and N. McClung) was donated to the Canadian government! An offer, which it was not able to refuse.
