A Woman’s Place is in the House of Commons

This spring, our collaborative girls’ schools speaker event returns, and the topic couldn’t be more timely.

On Wednesday, April 19, St. Clement’s, Bishop Strachan, Branksome, and Havergal will co-present an inspiring panel discussion and Q & A about politics and the role of women in the field, with some of Canada’s most accomplished female politicians and advocates.

Moderated by Donna Dasko, founder of Equal Voice, the panel includes:

  • The Honourable Dr. Helena Jaczek, MPP, Oak Ridges-Markham and Minister of Community and Social Services (and SCS alumna from the class of ’67!)
  • The Honourable Chrystia Freeland, MP University-Rosedale and Minister of Foreign Affairs
  • The Honourable Senator Linda Frum, Senator for Ontario
  • The Honourable Carolyn Bennett, MP, Toronto-St. Paul’s and Minister of Indigenous and Northern Affairs
  • Justice Betty, Founder of The Political Youth Network

Sharing unique stories about their experiences in public office, the panel will discuss the opportunities and challenges they have faced in their careers, explain the rewarding and engaging work of politics, and talk about the importance of community involvement and how to help find your voice and be part of the change. As we look toward the future with hope and the prospect of exciting new opportunities, conversation about women in politics is an important one to engage in.

Please join us on Wednesday, April 19 from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
Legacy Theatre, Havergal College (1451 Avenue Road)

Registration is free, but seating is limited and will be on a first-come, first-served basis.
Tickets will be available until April 18 at 11:59 p.m. – reserve yours today!
