People pictured at Ottawa Women's March on Jan. 20, 2017. Currently, only 27 per cent of our current crop of MPs are women, so there’s lots of room for progress. But improvement will only come with many more women on the ballot in what are understood to be winnable ridings, however parties deem them so, writes Nancy Peckford.

Julie Lalonde, a well-known and highly credible Ottawa-based feminist advocate with much expertise in harassment, offered Liberals a workshop last weekend at their policy convention. But her efforts were derided by a small number of vocal opponents because Liberal MP Kent Hehr attended the workshop. She was left to defend the accusation that she was not providing a safe space for survivors, something that had never been intended as part of the workshop. Screenshot
