Equal Voice says some 315 women have so far been nominated by the Conservatives, NDP, Liberals, Greens, and the Bloc Québécois to run in the federal election, or 30.18 per cent of the major parties’ candidates. That number obviously falls short of the 52 per cent target, and even further than the 2011 federal election when 405 women, or 31 per cent, ran federally. It’s time more women also got into federal office to, now, and it’s time they hold more Cabinet positions, more powerful Cabinet positions, and more positions of influence in parties’ caucuses and committees.
