The five women are portrayed with the story behind their actions. The plaque needs attention as it is weathering badly.

On Parliament Hill, you have the monument for the Women Emmancipation Memorial (as I believe as it´s called) and it´s a point in history where women manage to have their voice hear and could give their opinion and stand to their point.

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
