Overview

It’s already passé to ask if parity is important for today’s Canada. What’s needed now is to ask how we can make sure more women run for office and that they’re well-represented in government. There are no easy answers to this, but it’s clear that half-measures just won’t do. Pascale Navarro argues that quotas are essential for women to achieve parity with men in politics.
