Famous Five: The Persons Case
Legal history was made in 1929 when the British Privy Council overturned a Supreme Court decision and declared that women were persons under the law.
The Persons Case in Canada resulted in the finding, on October 18, 1929, that women were persons under the law. To commemorate that event, October 18 has been celebrated as Person's Day in Canada, and Women's History Month in Canada is celebrated in October.
