As part of building this website I asked some women who have spent parts of their lives participating in politics the following question:
Why is it important for women to be politically involved?
A few responses:
From Françoise Boivin, MP for Gatineau and Official Opposition Critic for Justice
From Joyce Murray, MP from Vancouver Quadra:
“Women live the experiences and perspectives of over half of humanity; we need their voices heard whenever issues are being discussed and decisions that affect women are made”
