Happy Persons Day!

Tomorrow is Persons Day in Canada. On October 18, 1929 the Persons Case was settled when the Privy Council in England declared that Canadian women were indeed ‘persons’ under the law and thus could be appointed to the Senate. In honour of this decision, October is declared Women’s History Month in Canada and the 18th is Persons Day. See here for more details.
