This sculpture that includes statues of 5 women is a great tribute to the brave ladies who challenged and changed terminology forever - women were to be included in the term 'persons'. This is a great memorial to these amazing women that changed history.

“And women are people too...” Very powerful in its simplicity and its message. The statues are gorgeous. And the setting is right: simple and readily accessible. I’m so glad I found these statues as I was walking downtown Calgary.

Not too much else around, but if yo'd like to find the statues around town to make a little walking tour of them all it gives your trip some purpose.

Ideally situated on Calgary’s popular Steven Avenue Mall, these statutes provide an interesting backdrop and context to your walk along Steven Avenue Mall as well as some insight into our history the the role these five interesting and motivated figures played.

Charming piece of public art humorously portraying the story of five remarkable women. Loved the tea cups.

My girlfriend posed for several photos with these bronze ladies. It was entertaining, but SO cold. If you are into statues and posing for fun pictures this is a great group to find.
