BC NDP for Chilliwack-Kent Patti MacAhonic hosted 28 Annual Bread & Roses celebration to honour volunteers on behalf of Ann Davis Transition Society last Thursday. Former Chilliwack-Hope MLA Gwen OMahony was featured as guest speaker. With provincial elections well underway OMahony speaks candidly of her time as MLA, but also as woman on campaign trail. As young female politician, she may have just paved way for female candidates like MacAhonic. Currently, there is shortage of female politicians, and according to stats Canada, majority of women would not choose to run for office. Alarming 67 Per Cent Of Women In Canada Are Interested In Running For Politics, So Campaigners Like O Mahony, And MacAhonic Are Rare Breed, Despite Having Female Premier In Office. When O Mahony doorknocking in 2009, response she most often received was with regard to her gender. Eight out nine people would answer door and say Oh youre woman, say O Mahony. After some time, that element wasnt there anymore, largely in part to OMahonys determination to campaign with best of her male counterparts, citing her Irish background, as part of reason she tackled her campaign head on despite initial concerns over her sex. Eventually that shock factor didnt exist anymore, so I think that I make women running for more normalized, she say. Women also tend to get elected ten years later than men and were used to seeing younger men getting elected to office, so my age might have played role in shock factor, she say. O Mahony was 39 years old when she elected into office in 2012. As politician, your name has to resonate and people have to understand who you are and only way to do that is to get out there and start running for elections. O Mahony ran three times before being elected, but it wasnt until Jack Layton's campaign that people began to recognize her, and acknowledge that she might have chance at winning. Being personable and approachable is important part of being elected government official in small communities, according to OMahony, and people would often go to O Mahony for help on different issues that she would then parlay to media to help them gain traction. During her speech, O Mahony showed plaques of female political representatives from early 1900s to present day, and made point to illustrate, that had she brought in board with male representatives from this time period, there would have easily been eight boards. Though people think weve tackled these issues and rights, we really haven't come that far in hundred years, say OMahony. It is important to get running in politics. NDP Party Really Makes Effort To Get Women Running In Politics, We Have Taken Fire From Other Political Parties Because We Make Sure That Women Are Elect, Say O Mahony.
