    Famous 5 Foundation - Edmonton Committee

    The Enbridge Famous 5 Speaker Series profiles extraordinarily successful women. Our speakers talk candidly about their careers, and the passion, vision and determination that drive them. They discuss our place in our society and the ethical responsibilities and consequences of our actions.  In relating their lives, you will hear about challenges as well as triumphs; humorous incidents and stories of loss; humbling moments of reflection and inspiring calls to action.  The Famous 5 Foundation is proud to partner with Enbridge Pipelines Inc. to present the Enbridge Famous 5 Speaker Series featuring dynamic and engaging women.

    It's the story of five ordinary women, born in the mid-nineteenth century, who joined the trek west with their families to frontier Canada. Each had a history of advocacy on behalf of women and children. All were prominent suffragists. When they arrived in Alberta, each had already had significant victories in her own particular areas of activism.

    They arrived on fertile soil where grassroots reform movements flourished. The women of the frontier who had arrived before them had contributed their own labour to building homesteads alongside their husbands. The Famous Five extended this pioneer spirit, taking female influence further, into a larger sphere of community and politics.

    In the face of prejudice and opposition, they built alliances with other women’s organizations and brilliantly communicated their vision for a society where women could participate in public service equally with men. They refused to take no for an answer—even when turned down by the Supreme Court of Canada.
