If someone says that women can not be in the Canadian senate then ask them why not. I mean why can women not be in the senate or why can't they be called persons? Aren't women persons just like men? I think that women should be in the senate because they know like differently then men do and they can help give more rights to women.
Women can do anything they set their minds to, including being politicians. Just look at Hilary Clinton. In this day in age, we need a women in the office because having constant male presidents is not doing much for the feminism movement that is occurring. Women are just as able as men.
Women can hold whatever positions they want in society. The political realm isn't just a good ol' boy network. Women may even make better politicians in that they may take an easier stance with each other instead of being argumentative. A record 20 women were elected to the Senate in 2012. Perhaps that is a sign the times are changing.
