‘Women hold just 30 per cent of seats in Parliament; only two of 12 premiers are women. It matters because women matter.’
I remember sitting in the back seat of my dad’s truck driving around Saint John one day when I was 12. I was feeling smug because I had just correctly named the Mayor, Premier and Prime Minister: Ivan Court, Bernard Lord, Stephen Harper. It would be another 10 years before I would start questioning why politics in Canada is dominated by men and what that means for women.
