Ms. Sheila Malcolmson (Nanaimoâ€”Ladysmith, NDP):
Â« Mr. Speaker, after decades of marching, resisting, and persisting for equal rights, on International Women's Day we see first-hand the women's movement is stronger than ever.
Today, young women fill this House, a powerful show of new leadership. I honour especially delegate Arazoo Najibzadeh. She chose to leave her seat empty, to represent the countless women who have been denied their political voice.
