Gee, Kishek and Ifill: Trudeau and the Liberals have lost their feminist credentials

    Mar 8, 2019

    When women are given opportunities to succeed in the workplace, we know that there is something unspoken in that opportunity: Should we fail to live up to the unreasonable expectations set for us, we will be punished and likely won’t be given a similar opportunity for some time.

    But when Justin Trudeau was elected prime minister, women across Canada felt a glimmer of hope. For a little while, we felt emboldened to be audacious in our ambition and goals for ourselves. We thought that we would be treated with equity. We felt that Justin Trudeau and the Liberal party had our backs.
