Product description

Review

"Bashevkin has written a thoughtful, provocative and accessible book... A particularly useful and timely primer for all those Canadians - women and men - who accept the premise of her title: that the dramatic under-representation of women in our political leadership is the unfinished business of Canadian democracy." --Rt Hon Kim Campbell, first female Prime Minister of Canada

"A stimulating, accessible and practical guide... Combined with electoral reform, [Bashevkin's] insights will go a long way in helping to correct our democratic deficit." --June Macdonald, chair of Women for Fair Voting, Fair Vote Canada

"A lucid, smart and helpful examination of why women mostly fail in politics in Canada, and what can be done about it. Women, Power, Politics should be marked Urgent on the Prime Minister's reading list." --Rosemary Speirs, former national political columnist for the Toronto Star, and founding chair of Equal Voice
