‘We open ourselves up:’ Women’s tales from the campaign trail

Forty-three women put their names on the ballot in Edmonton’s municipal election – some were veterans in civic politics and others were first-time candidates. In this episode, we talk to four female candidates to get their tales from the campaign trails. From naked men who answered the door while they were door-knocking; to comments about their fertility; to the thought they put into their personal image and how it would appear in their campaign literature. These women shared stories, laughs, and a few glasses of beer. Their stories are funny and heart-warming — and hopefully inspiring for some, who are already looking ahead to 2021.
