This is the second most recent sculptural addition to Parliament Hill, the Famous Five. Emily Murphy, Irene Marryat Parlby, Nellie McClung, Louise McKinney, and Henrietta Muir Edwards were activists, politicians, and attorneys bringing forward the question of if women were legally considered persons. The case was resolved in 1929 in their favour, and more on their story can be found here. The sculptures are somewhat larger than life, and the faces have a vibrant energy to them. This is one of two sets; the other identical set can be found in Calgary.
