Who is he?
When he came to power last November, Justin memorably announced that his Cabinet would comprise 15 men and 15 women. Why? “Because it’s 2015”, was his answer.
He’s also declared himself to be a feminist, and that he wants to raise his children to be feminists, too. On International Women’s Day, he unveiled a plan to feature a Canadian woman on the country’s banknotes. He’s also pro choice.
Why should we thank him?
Not enough men, let alone leaders of countries, stand up and declare themselves to be feminists, highlighting as he has, that it’s an opportunity to improve our society for all.
“The days when old men get to decide what a woman does with her body are long gone. Times have changed for the better.”
