Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau believes in gender equality.
Last year, when asked why he made a point of selecting a ‘gender-balanced’ cabinet, he replied with a shrug and a simple line: “Because it’s 2015.”
Empowered and confident
On the Progress Towards Parity panel during the World Economic Forum’s annual meeting this year in Davos, Switzerland, Trudeau shared an important story about how he’s raising his own children. He’d taken special care to raise his daughter in a way that allows her to feel empowered and confident, but it wasn’t until his wife, Sophie, said something to him that he realized how important it is to take the same care raising his 8- and 2-year-old sons to be just as aware of gender issues.
“I’m incredibly proud to have a partner in my wife Sophie, who is extremely committed to women and girls issues.”
