06 Dec Read an Excerpt from Fred Groves’ ‘Elect Her: Still Struggling to Be Recognized as Equals’
In his new book, Elect Her: Still Struggling to Be Recognized as Equals (Crossfield Publishing), author and journalist Fred Groves tackles gender disparity in Canadian politics. Highlighting women who have climbed the ranks as Federal Opposition leaders and Cabinet Ministers as well as those who are relative newcomers to Canada’s political scene, the book questions why, after over 100 years of voting rights, so few women end up in positions of political influence in Canada compared to men. For those interested in the answers, Groves’ deep look into the history of women’s involvement in Canadian politics may provide what they’re looking for.
We’re very excited today to share an excerpt from Elect Her, publishing this month.
