Have students apply their research to current issues using discussion questions such as the following:

  • How are the Famous 5 role models for women today?

  • Are the Famous 5 role models for students?

  • What examples do the Famous 5 provide citizens participating in Canadian society?

  • Why do we remember the accomplishments of the Famous 5?

  • What can you do now to be an active citizen?

  • What causes do you think are important? Why?

  • To what extent would you be willing to become involved in them?

  • What difference can an individual make?

  • What difference can a group of citizens make?

The stories of the Famous 5 and The 'Persons' Case provide examples of women who have made a difference. Have students look for other stories of Canadian or international women and of other events that have advanced the cause of democracy and citizenship in the 1900s. Have students develop their own project that tells these stories.
