BC: THE END
FC: How did the work of the Famous Five influence the Canadian charter rights?
1: Women should have all the same rights as men because they can do many things men can't and are the reason the human race lives today. In this book, you will learn about how the work of the Famous Five laid the ground work for the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. | INTRODUCTION Women have different strengths, view points and a different perspective on things but all in all women are equal to men. Women deserve equal treatment and should not be discriminated against. | Nellie McClung
2: Canadian Charter Rights and Freedoms: The Charter guarantees our rights and freedoms. Our individual rights are rights that you are entitled to as a person. The charter rights and freedom support justice, equity and representation. No matter if your male, female, black or white, everybody is entitled to vote and many other rights and freedoms.
4: Before the Famous Five women did not have Democratic rights and had no say in the voting of the government. | DEMOCRATIC RIGHTS: All citizens are entitled to vote. Governments at least have to sit for one year and a maximum of five years with out an election.
7: FUNDAMENTAL FREEDOMS: Without the work of the Famous Five, women would not have been entitled to Fundamental Freedoms. For example, women would not have the right to follow a certain religion or belief, if they came from another country. They also would not have been allowed to give their opinion or meet peacefully with others. I think that women should be able to believe in what they like no matter where they came from. The Famous Five gave them that chance.
9: LEGAL RIGHTS: People have certain rights when they are arrested, they are put on trial when they are imprisoned. Because of the work the Famous Five did women have legal rights and are put on trial instead of just imprisoned.
10: The Persons case was a huge victory for the Famous Five and women all across Canada. It meant that women were then allowed to be appointed to the senate and were considered persons.
11: Henrietta Muir Edwards was the oldest of the Five. | In 1989 Audrey Mclaughin becomes the first women ever to lead a political party in Canada.
12: In 1921 Irene Parlby was appointed Minister and becomes the first in Alberta and second in the British Empire.
13: Henrietta Muir Edwards was the founder of the YMCA. A place abused women could go for shelter, warmth and food.If it wasn't for her many young women would have died back then.
14: MOBILITY RIGHTS: Women back then also didn't have mobility rights, the right to move freely around Canada and to leave and visit other provinces on their own.

16: Conclusion I think that are equal to men in every way and like I said are the reason the human race lives on. I also think that the Famous Five deserve more than just to be on the fifty dollar bill they have changed womens lives for ever and are an example of a true hero. Thats just my opinion
