Join us for Person's Day Breakfast
Friday, Oct. 29
Before 1929, Canadian women were not considered “people” under the law. They couldn’t vote, nor could they own property. On October 18, 1929, the ‘Persons Case’ established that women are persons under the law in Canada – a momentous step enabling women to participate in all aspects of Canadian public life. The University of Calgary celebrates this landmark court ruling with a Person’s Day breakfast, co-hosted by the Centre for Community-Engaged Learning and Women’s Resource Centre and the U of C’s LEAF chapter.
Students, staff, faculty and members of the community are invited to attend the U of C’s first Person’s Day Breakfast. Kim Brooks, Dean of the Schulich School of Law at Dalhousie University will speak about “25 years of Equality under the Charter.”
Student tickets are $10 and can be purchased through the Centre for Community-Engaged Learning (and Women’s Resource Centre) in MacEwan Hall 318. Limited student tickets are available. E-mail us for more information.
