Documentary - About 25%

The United Nations has set a minimum standard for representation by women in democratic governments at 30%.  This was further expressed in the 2011 General Assembly resolution on Women’s Political Participation, which states “that the active participation of women, on equal terms with men, at all levels of decision-making is essential to the achievement of equality, sustainable development, peace and democracy.”

Despite this reasonable target, active participation by women as representatives in municipal, provincial, and national governments in Canada is only 25%.  A documentary called “25%” encourages young women’s participation in politics and civic engagement in their community.
