Campaign crash course: women work to change face of politics

Imagine a weekend filled with the expertise and guidance of big-name female politicians like former MLA Jane Purves, MP Alexa McDonough and recent provincial leadership contender, MLA Diana Whalen. Add media experts like broadcaster Debi Forsyth Smith and top it off with a competition where you and your campaign team will be guided and judged by women who represent all major parties and all levels of government.

This was the line up for the 3rd Annual Nova Scotia Campaign School for Women held at Mount Saint Vincent University from May 25 to 27. The goal: better representation of women in elected office. Thirty of us got the opportunity to attend this non-partisan school. It was first come, first serve and there was a long waiting list.
