Famous 5

Emily Murphy, Henrietta Muir Edwards, Louise McKinney, Irene Parlby, and Nellie McClung got the Canadian government to see women as "persons" under the law in 1929. They also worked in their own ways to better women's lives in Alberta, across Canada and the world. Together these Alberta women became known as the Famous 5.
