This memorial is called 'Women Are Persons!' The photographs of its plaques will explain what it's about and who the women are. I call it, 'The Tea Party.' Briefly, the five women depicted; Henriette Edwards, Nellie McClung, Louise McKinney, Emily Murphy and Irene Parlby; were instrumental in having it made official that women are persons. To me this really reflects extremely badly on society in general in Canada in the 1920s that it was necessary to get this officially legislated.
