YOU ARE INVITED TO A FAMOUS 5 ‘PINK TEA’
At Angel's Cafe - 4105 Montgomery View NW Calgary - 6-9pm on April 26, 2023
From Carolyn: I love sharing the story of how The Famous 5 struggled to finally win The Persons Case.
Each of these tenacious Alberta women were instrumental in promoting women’s rights in many important areas of women’s lives. They each have a story of courage.
I am planning an interactive hour of information about The Famous 5. I will share what I have learned about these women and The Persons Case and will be open to any information those attending might also have about these women and this case.
I will be teaching the chorus of my songs and encouraging us to all sing together in unity.
There will be time for a small group discussion about issues of today that still need to be addressed and goal setting.
We will have an opportunity for ‘conversations of consequence’!
Wear a hat and have a chat!!
“Their work is still not finished
The world is still unjust
And when we fear to take a stand
Their spirit says we must”
Excerpt from The Spirit of the Famous Five

Carolyn’s career choice was as a pre-school teacher which allowed her to be creative in music, art and storytelling. It was as a pre-school teacher at Nellie McClung Elementary School that she first learned that Nellie McClung was a member of The Famous 5 who fought for and won The Persons Case.
Carolyn became connected with the Calgary based Famous 5 Foundation during its inaugural year, over 25 years ago with her songs about The Famous 5. She has been a supporter of this organization and currently her songs are being used as the theme music for an international, F5F live-stream called Virtual Pink Tea Speaker Series.
