Women in Municipal Politics - Jane Ledwell
Women currently make up about 30 per cent of the municipal politicians on Prince Edward Island. It's a much higher percentage than in provincial and federal politics. The PEI Advisory Council on the Status of Women wants to grow the number of women in politics including at the municipal level. Nominations for elections in PEI's small municipalities close later today. And the council is hoping there will be lots of women on the ballot. The group has produced a new municipal election guide for the 2012 elections called "Women Care for Communities". Jane Ledwell is the Council's Executive Director.
