“In the eyes of the law…the slave is not a person.”
Virginia Supreme Court decision, 1858
“An indian is not a ‘person’ within the meaning of the constitution.”
American Law Review, 1881
“The statutory word ‘person’ did not in these circumstances include women.”
British Voting Rights case, 1909
“The Reichsgericht itself refused to recognize Jews…as ‘persons’ in the legal sense.”
German Supremem Court decision, 1936
“The law of Canada does not recognize the unborn child as a legal person possessing rights.”
Canadian Supreme Court
Winnipeg Child and Services Case, 1997
