Let's Elect a Woman-Positive Legislature in Nova Scotia!

Dear friends and allies,

The Women’s Centres Connect! campaign to increase support for women’s services is entering its final week. So far we have received positive responses from over sixty political candidates including the leaders of the Liberal, New Democratic and Green parties.

While we are pleased with these responses, many candidates have not yet responded to women’s centres’ request for fair, competitive salaries.

We need your help over the next week to secure these candidates’ support. The following is a list of candidates who have given positive responses to our campaign (there are 71 in total). Are your candidates on this list?

It’s time to put the pressure on our politicians to support women’s services!
