Have we achieved gender equality? Nine Canadian women respond

The Globe and Mail featured nine Canadian women talking about the country’s progress in achieving gender equality. Ellie Parton, a third-year medical student at UBC, was one of those interviewed. Parton, a member of the Wei Wai Kum band in Campbell River, B.C, said she sees a lot of awareness and advocacy for gender equality.

“My general philosophy on life is that we are capable of much more than we think we can do,” said Parton.
