September 23 2019

Dr. Bashevkin, a political science professor at the University of Toronto, gave us an eye-opening look at some of the research she has been conducting surrounding women in top political roles at the provincial level.

Dr. Bashevkin shared some of the difficulties faced by our female leaders including inheriting a political party that had been rocked by scandal,  criticism by insiders in their own party ranks, and threats from members of the public against their own personal safety.
