Are women people?

A 1876 British Common Law ruling declared: “Women are persons in matters of pain and penalties, but are not persons in matters of rights and privileges.”

In 1928, four women asked the Supreme Court of Canada to consider this question: “Does the word ‘person’… include female ‘persons’?”

The Supreme Court answered, “No, it does not.”

We found this startling information in Helen LaKelly Hunt’s book Faith and Feminism.
