Women in Politics: Why Not Me?

Did you know that in the Prescott and Russell region, municipal councils have only 21% women*, while they represent 51.0% of the population? Women's Leadership Prescott-Russell intends to respond to these major challenges with their "Women in Politics, Why Not Me?" campaign.
