#50-21Good Parliaments … Gender sensitization in action

A deep look at a longterm process to make the world’s parliaments and legislatures gender equitable, gender sensitive, and diverse. And more humane workplaces. Thanks to research, the creation of processes and handbooks, and outright pressure, the institutions show signs of giving in. The discussion is international, including the UK, but with special attention to Canada and BC. Retired NDP Deputy Leader Libby Davies, author of Outside In, interviewed political scientist and gender sensitization researcher/activist/author Dr. Jeannette Ashe.  Based on a 3-part series of Rabble Radio interviews, produced by Chelsea Nash and Breanne Doyle – available in full at for WINGS by Frieda Werden.
