Women are underrepresented in politics, including among Canadian mayors. Of the nearly 400 mayors in Canada representing communities with more than 10,000 people, only 66 are women. Specifically, it's 16%. The percentage is even lower for larger cities. Of the 50 largest cities in Canada, only 12% of the mayors are women. Some cities such as Vancouver, Calgary and Hamilton have never had a female mayor. Yikes.
Fortunately, we have some epic female mayors. Get to know them.
