Torkin Manes proudly celebrates Persons Day

Persons Day

“The exclusion of women from all public offices is a relic of days more barbarous than ours. And to those who would ask why the word ‘person’ should include females, the obvious answer is, why should it not?”

- Lord Sankey, Lord Chancellor of Great Britain
  October 18, 1929

Torkin Manes is proud to celebrate Persons Day, which commemorates the landmark ruling that launched the progress in the advancement of gender equality in Canada. Throughout the decades, this milestone victory has served as the underpinning of increased participation in public and political life for women, and paved the way for future generations of women to participate equally in other aspects of Canadian life.
