Famous Five

Some dear girlfriends and I celebrated 80 years of Canadian women being declared "'persons" at a high tea honoring five courageous women, Emily, Nellie, Louise, Irene, and Henrietta.
Best remembered for their work as suffragists, legislators, champions of the rights and welfare of women and children, and for their successful appeal of the ‘Persons' Case in 1929 [in Canada] which changed the world for all women in the British Empire. Dressed in our Sunday best,

we were ever so lady-like as we sipped our tea and nibbled on those delightful, tiny finger sandwiches and fought over, (i mean bid on) spectacular artist-made hats --www.aboundphotography.com/Non-Profit/Famous-5-Foundation/


all to support the Famous 5 foundation that carries on the leadership work begun by these hard-as-nails early feminists.
Carry on, girls! "We are equal to high and splendid braveries."

Oldie but Goodie
