Welcome to Ellected – the podcast about women in politics, by women in politics, and for anyone who supports women in politics.
In Episode 20 of Ellected, host Sarah Elder-Chamanara sits down with Canada’s Minister of Children, Families and Social Development and MP for Burlington, Karina Gould. They get really personal, really fast sharing birth stories, getting into the details of the multi-billion dollar child care agreements signed with every province and territory, and chat about being a woman in politics – including Gould describing the moment she told Prime Minister Justin Trudeau she was pregnant after being appointed to cabinet.
The Honourable Karina Gould was first elected as the Member of Parliament for Burlington in 2015. She has previously served as Minister of International Development and Minister of Democratic Institutions.
Sarah Elder-Chamanara is the founder, creative director and owner of Madame Premier, a feminist and political clothing company based in Calgary, Alberta. With the underlying principle of seeing more women and diversity in politics, elected and in backrooms, at every level, Madame Premier creates the opportunity for conversations about why politics needs to change. Madame Premier has been featured in the National Post, CBC, Forbes and Toronto Star. Sarah is currently planning on opening Madame Premier’s first retail location in summer 2021 in Calgary.
