Ghost #7

    This statue was made to honor Hazel Braithwaite who was a leader in early women's movements. In 1926 she pushed her way by men who were attempting to stop her from voting in the provincial election.

    Hazel belonged to many organizations that helped people and had roots to the agricultural industry. Hazel ran for the Alberta legislature in 1965. Hazel died in 1989.

    This sculpture certainly shows her determination to bring about changes that would benefit all people. And all people included women and all people would be equal.

A very powerful lady who could get things done.

I can't find out what the female sculpture in her hands means.
