Finale, Part 2: Women In Leadership Roles
On June 19th, the No Second Chances project came to a close with a major event held in Ottawa. It was the largest gathering of female first ministers in Canadian history. The first panel of the day was moderated by Huffington Post Ottawa Bureau Chief Althia Raj, and included input from former Premier of Newfoundland and Labrador, Kathy Dunderdale, former Premier of the Yukon, Pat Duncan, and former Premier of Alberta, Rachel Notley. The panelists spoke about what led them to run for political office, the roadblocks that prevent women from running - including the vitriol on social media targeted specifically at women - and the need for greater diversity in legislatures across Canada.
