What needs to change to see more women lead in politics? Well, the sole women to have reached the top have some advice. This Open Letter to Canadians offers words of wisdom from these remarkable leaders. Check it out here:
Since 1867, only 12 women have served as either premier or prime minister in Canada. There have, in fact, been more than three times as many First Ministers named John than there have been women.
