LEAF Persons Day Events in Victoria and Nanaimo

October 22, 2010

Celebrate Persons Day with West Coast LEAF by attending events in Victoria and Nanaimo this month. The West Coast LEAF website reminds us of the background of the annual event:

One of the most important milestones in Canadian women’s history will be commemorated with a series fo Persons Day events in October 2010.

Persons Day is the 1929 victory that established many women as “persons” under the law and eligible for appointment in the Senate.

In Victoria, West Coast LEAF is commemorating the event by hosting a Persons Day Wine and Cheese on October 21, and in Nanaimo a Equality Brunch will be held on October 30. The speaker for both events is Marcy Cohen. For more information, see the news item on the West Coast LEAF website.
