The Famous Five — Emily Murphy, Irene Parlby, Nellie McClung, Louise McKinney, Henrietta Muir Edwards — were extraordinary women whose passion and dedication led to the landmark recognition, in 1929, of women as “persons” under the law. The Famous 5 Luncheon honours their memory and celebrates extraordinary contemporary Canadian women from all walks of life who are playing a pivotal role as nation builders.
Nunavut Premier Eva Aariak joins other leading women of the North at this fascinating luncheon offering intelligent discussion and illuminating commentary.
