Canadians Elected A Record 76 Women to Parliament – Most Of Them NDP
"For the first time in Canada’s history, and exactly 90 years since the first female Member of Parliament strode into the green chamber, women make up a quarter of the 308 seats in the House of Commons.
That record high is nothing to sneeze at, advocates say – but it’s also nothing to be overly proud of. Canada remains 52nd in the world when it comes to female representation in political office, and it’s falling further behind as other countries take more aggressive measures to even out the gender balance."
