Canada: Daughters of the Vote



Canada: Daughters of the Vote

Thursday, June 30, 2016 (All day)


As part of the lead up to Canada’s 150th celebrations in 2017, Equal Voice is launching a national initiative, Daughters of the Vote, to recognize a significant event in Canadian history: The 100th anniversary of the first voting rights for a select number of Canadian women granted in 1916. Equal Voice is inviting young women, ages 18-23, to apply to participate in a national initiative in which 338 women, one from each federal riding, will be selected to take their seat in Parliament, literally. The women will meet and hear from outstanding women leaders from every sector. You can find more information about this program here. Applications are due June 30, 2016.
