Posted by Communications Officer on March 21, 2017 in News

Fourth year student Sarah Dobson (BA Honours in Political Science with a Minor in Economics) and second year student Lydia Swiatkowski (BA Major in Political Science with Minors in Management and French) both had the great opportunity along with Camille Horton Poole (MPA program at Dalhousie and graduate of the BA Honours Political Science and History, May 2016), and a number of other amazing young women (including others from Dalhousie/NS) from coast to coast to visit the House of Commons on National Women’s Day and took part in the Daughters of the Vote Leadership Forum (organized by Equal Voice Canada).  Dr. Louise Carbert was one of the organizers who was also in attendance. 

Sarah and Lydia were featured on Global News and in The Chronicle Herald:
