This is a fun monument that allows you to get in on the action. Have your photo taken with the Famous Five and learn why they are famous.
Tip: this area is a must see in Ottawa. You can visit the Parliament buildings for free, there are organized tours and you just have to book in advance (tourist office across the parliament). The famous five monument is my fav. It honors the 5 women that asked the Supreme Court to clarify if women were persons.
Just to the right as you face the Parliament building, this monument honors an interesting piece of the history of womens' rights in Canada. Having gained the right to vote in 1919, the courts still had to decide if a woman was a person.
If you are going on a tour of the Parliament buildings then take some time to look at this monument because it will be right near where you will meet your tour guide. Great photo opportunity.
It's a thrill to see the history of real women who graded the pathways for present day encouragement of accomplished women. The monument is an apt celebration.
Great place to take some photos amongst the famous five. Your chance to become the 6th member as this area is well designed for photo opportunities. Lean on the table and share a cup of coffee or sit on the chair. Right next to Parliament hill and buildings.
This monument always attracts people & for good reason - you can actually almost participate in the tea service. Young and old enjoy the life size or larger figures. A great reminder how far women have come
