Anniversary of the 1929 Persons Case

October 18th is Persons Day in Canada.

On this day in 1929, the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council, then Canada's highest appellate court, ruled that women were indeed "persons" under the law.

The Blogosaurus Lex blog (Legal Resource Centre of Alberta) has links to the text of the case as well as to websites with historical background material and analysis.
