Female Mayors

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.
