The Famous Five.

famous5The Famous Five was a group of five women who changed rights for women as we know it. The names of the women were Emily Murphy, Nellie McClung, Henrietta Muir Edwards, Louise McKinney, and Irene Parlby.

The Famous Five did what every woman did while protesting and more. They did the usual things like chaining themselves to buildings and protesting in front of government buildings, But they took it one step further. They did things like doctor house-calls and leading other women to victory! it is because of these women that women today have any rights at all.
