No Second Chances

Finale, Part 1: Setting The Stage

July 08, 2019

On June 19th, the No Second Chances project came to a close with a major event held in Ottawa. It was the largest gathering of female first ministers in Canadian history. Kate Graham opened the day with introductory remarks, followed by a keynote speech from former Premier of Alberta, Rachel Notley.

Notley spoke about the known, universal barriers that stand in the way of women's leadership in politics, the importance of building alliances across party lines, and a new troubling development that will likely prevent women from entering the ring at all.
