Many people have lauded that 2016 was a breakthrough year for women, particularly in Canadian Politics. There were around 88 women who managed to get elected to the House of Commons in 2015, which was the greatest number in the history of Canada. This year Christy Clark became the longest serving female premier and woman in Canadian politics, which has become a matter of pride for her and the entire nation as well.
Female politicians have changed the game in Canadian politics, and have turned the tables on people who doubted them. They are not only making huge strides forward in the industry, but also drawing applause from all quarters. This is a massive time for women in Canadian politics, and the best part about the entire thing is that it is motivating the public to see more women in politics.
It should be noted that Canadian politics has also made it easier for women to get their big break over here. There have been lots of instances where a lot of leaders have disregarded the role of women in politics but that mindset has changed over the years. It has become a great matter of pride for women all over the world to reclaim their rights and stand up for themselves.
The only thing hindering more progress for women in Canadian politics is that they don’t seem to have universal experience in politics at all. It has become a matter of great personal pride for them to break out into politics, but do all of them have experience? Most don’t have experience, but are working towards gaining experience so that future women in Canadian politics may benefit. This mindset will motivate an entire generation of women to stand up for women’s rights and will see women role models in Canadian politics.
