Great question! Check out this article by Angela Misri who sheds light on this topic with 'real world' insights from Jane Phillpott, former minister of health; Lisa Raitt, former minister of three portfolios (natural resources, labour and transport); Elizabeth May, former Green Party Leader; and Peggy Nash, former NDP MP.

Since confederation only13 women have reached Canada's top political posts as a premier or prime minister (as of Sept 2021). Astonishing!

Why aren't more women leading in politics?
