Women’s Committee focuses not only on encouraging women’s participation in the political process but it also serves as a place to break down barriers and dispel stereotypes. Under Andrea Horwath’s historic leadership – she is the first woman to lead Ontario NDP – more and more women are getting involved in the party and we hope to use this space to galvanize them into action.
