DaughtersOfTheVote.pngThree hundred thirty-eight young women leaders have been selected to represent each of Canada’s 338 federal ridings for the historic Daughters of the Vote initiative.

At a day-long forum in each Daughter’s home province or territory, they will spend a day learning about the historic – and still incomplete journey – of women in Canadian politics.

On International Women’s Day, March 8, 2017, every Daughter will have the opportunity to take her seat in Parliament when they will be joined by the Rt. Hon. Kim Campbell, Canada’s first and only woman Prime Minister, who will deliver an address from the Speaker’s chair.

While on Parliament Hill, the Daughters will also be engaging in a full-day of public policy discussions and participating in Leadership Workshops featuring advice from women in politics, business, the labour movement and voluntary sector.
