The current political reality has awakened in many women the urgent determination to be involved — but the journey from the sidelines to political power is seldom a straight path.

Enter Women on the Ballot, an essential roadmap designed to encourage, equip, and empower women to step up and run for political office. This is a book about women who saw things as they were, knew change was needed, and entered into Canadian politics.

Gleaned from more than 100 hours of interviews, Women on the Ballot offers compelling stories, insights, and advice from more than 90 Canadian women with diverse backgrounds across all levels of politics and party lines.

About the Author:

Betsy McGregor is a passionate champion of women in politics. Betsy ran for nomination three times and Parliament twice, learning lessons on timing, strategy, and skills, which she shares in running campaign schools, nomination races, and leadership workshops. She spent sixteen years crafting public policy on science, ethics, and gender, including fellowships at Harvard Medical School and Harvard Kennedy School. She then entered politics to have a direct impact on issues at the decision table. A member of three women’s leadership boards, Betsy wrote Women on the Ballot to equip, empower, and inspire women by telling her story and the story of over 90 women trailblazers. The Rt. Hon. Kim Campbell, Canada’s only woman prime minister, has called Betsy “a truly strong role model and an inspiring mentor for future young women leaders.” She lives on Clear Lake in the Kawarthas.
