In the Hoofsteps of Emooly Murphy



The Calgary Stampede is home to many cows and bulls who work hard all summer in bull riding and cow riding. Eva loves watching her mother giving rides to children. When Eva learns that her mother is being paid less than the bulls for a hard day’s work, she wants to stand up and make her voice heard at City Stall. She follows in the hooftsteps of the renowned Emooly Murphy and argues for fairness between the bulls and cows at the Stampede.

This story seeks to teach children about the right to equal treatment and freedom from discrimination on the basis of sex, which is guaranteed by section 15(1) of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. This section provides that:

Every individual is equal before and under the law and has the right to the equal protection and equal benefit of the law without discrimination and, in particular, without discrimination based on…sex.
