What does it actually take to encourage more women to become politically involved? To keep women engaged and active in our positions of power?
“Our mission is to activate, aggregate, and amplify female voices in all spheres of power: politics, media, economy, environment, hearth and home.” ~ Femmocracy Now
How about a ‘camp’ that teaches you the ins & outs of running a campaign. A series of movie nights that share documentaries about strong, political women, sparking discussions around how those experiences relate to our community. A social media presence that works to build community across party lines.
That’s the Femmocracy Now movement in a nutshell. This newly-formed group in the Greater Moncton Area is working to ensure more women become active in politics, particularly with a focus on the upcoming municipal elections in the spring. Spokeswoman Amélie Bryar joins Jenna & Tosh to talk about the group & its programs.
