Posted: February 11, 2009
Author Anne Edwards will be reading from and signing copies of her new book Seeking Balance: Conversations with BC Women in Politics in Cranbrook at Lotus Books (33 10th Avenue South), at 7:30pm on Wednesday, February 18th.
In Seeking Balance, Anne Edwards shares her conversations with more than eighty women politicians, including Rita Johnston, Rosemary Brown, Grace McCarthy, Kim Campbell, Pat Carney, Darlene Marzari, Joy McPhail and Carole James. These women, who served as members of the provincial legislature or the Canadian parliament, reveal their ambitions and their reactions to serving in a political system designed and dominated by men.
