Friends! Come check out Gretchen Kelbaugh's film Menocracy, which is being shown in Fredericton this Saturday (Nov. 7) at 3pm, at the Charlotte Street Arts Centre. Tickets are $5 at the door.
Here is a synopsis:
Governments in Canada, the USA and the UK do not fairly represent the views of women.
Pushed by the spirit of her great-aunt, Militant Suffragette Gert Harding, Gretchen Kelbaugh searches for ways to elect more women. Leading political scientists and Rt Hon Kim Campbell, the only woman to be head of government in North America, offer many solutions.
In the end, Gretchen and the sassy spirit learn the surprising truth: not only does our rotten democracy fail women; it fails almost everyone. And the secret kept by top politicians: most other democracies have fixed the problem long ago.
And if you prefer to let 'nature' take its course, know this: At our current rate, it'll be well over 200 years before half our politicians are women.
See you there!
