December 5 – Day 11 – Women in Politics

Women are still a minority in Canadian politics. In federal office, women make
up only about 27% of politicians. In provincial politics, the province with the
highest percentage of women in office is British Columbia, with 36%. More women
in politics means more focus on women’s issues, and more role models for Canadian girls.
What you can do: Contribute (time or money) to campaigns for female politicians; run for office; vote for female politicians!
