What are we waiting for? In 2016, the centenary of the first women in Canada to get the vote, LLP is publishing a rallying cry for women in politics by Montreal journalist Pascale Navarro. Foreword by Sue Montgomery.
Montreal journalist and columnist Pascale Navarro is a frequent contributor to major newspapers and magazines as well as to radio and television broadcasts. Winner of the Women of Merit prize for Communications in 2007, she is the author of several feminist essays on contemporary social and political issues. Women and Power is the first of her books to appear in English.
This 80-page essay makes the case for gender parity in government in a concise, candid, and informative way. The book is a compilation of facts, statistics, and explanations that answer the hows, whys, and what ifs. It concludes that gender parity isn?t tokenism but a new and improved way of doing things that forces adaptation in the political process before, during, and after elections. And make no mistake about it: there can be no real democracy where the concerns and issues of all are not represented. Toula Drimonis, Ricochet
