Women in Politics at Marymount Academy

June 15, 2004 - Laurel Broten, Premier Dalton McGuinty’s Parliamentary Assistant
addressed Marymount Academy’s student body on “Women in Politics” at a
special presentation at the school recently. Mrs. Broten’s presentation centred on the “lack of female participation and presence” in today’s political arena and apathy among voters, ages 18 to 24. The key message of her 30-minute presentation focused on encouraging Marymount’s young voters to become involved in politics at the local level and get to know their political leaders if they want to change their world for the better. In her closing remarks, the Parliamentary assistant stated that, “You have to believe that anything you want to achieve is possible, involve yourselves in the political process today, as you may very well be the leaders of tomorrow.”
