The BC Liberal

Women's Network

Engaging women in full and equal participation in the political process and the BC Liberal Party.

Support Women in Politics

The BC Liberal Women’s Network reflects the voices and experiences of women across British Columbia. Building on the leadership of BC’s first elected woman premier in Christy Clark, the Network encourages women to become actively involved in policy development and initiatives, and in seeking office in provincial elections.

We offer support in presenting new ideas to government, and partner with BC women in initiatives that increase engagement with women across the province.

A Message from Our President

The Women’s Network is actively involved in planning events across the province in order to engage with women and members in our provincial community.

Becoming a member is an opportunity to engage in dialogue on issues that matter to you – and enables women to connect with MLAs, Ministers, future candidates, and our party as a whole.

I invite you to join and become an active member of the BC Liberal Women’s Network. To join, please send your request to: membership@bcliberals.com.

And be sure to visit us on Facebook to sign up and read about our busy women MLAs.

On April 30th, the Women’s Network hosted a panel discussion entitled “Women in Politics – the obstacles and difficulties that they face”. Our panelists were Shirley Bond, MLA Prince George Valemont, Tracy Redies MLA Surrey White Rock, Alex Dutton former candidate Victoria Oak Bay – Gordon Head, and Puneet Sandhar former candidate Surrey Panorama. The panel was moderated by Jas Johal, MLA Richmond-Queensborough.

These women shared their experiences, their considerations for running, their obstacles, their frustrations, their wins and their losses, positive experiences and their takeaways from entering the race to become an elected politician. They gave heartfelt, insightful and excellent information to potential future candidates, who were invited to attend and learn about the electoral process as experienced by women candidates.
