25 years later, P.E.I.'s 'Famous Five' still push for more women in government

Former leaders in Island politics, the women noted the Island hasn't made gains in numbers of elected women

Though they're long retired from life in legislature and governance, P.E.I.'s "Famous Five" are still pushing for more women to enter the political realm.
