Best Answer

The issue was not resolved by legislation. It was ultimately determined by a court case that went all the way to the Privy Council. Google "persons case" (and ignore "missing persons") to learn more about this landmark decision of the Privy Council. P.S. The five women were Emily Murphy, Henrietta Muir Edwards, Nellie McClung, Louise McKinney, and Irene Parlby. Your assignment now is to Google each of those five names and explain briefly why each woman was made a party to the court case.
