First Woman Prime Minister of Canada
Canadians want to see real hope restored, not false hopes raised.
Determined and ambitious, Kim Campbell can claim many "firsts" for women: first female minister of justice and attorney general of Canada; first female minister of national defense; first female elected leader of the Progressive Conservative Party of Canada;
and, in 1993, elected to be the first female prime minister of Canada.

Link to Article about Prime Minister Campbell: "As Justice Minister, Campbell brought about a new rape law that clarified sexual assault and whose passage firmly entrenched that in cases involving sexual assault, "no means no." She also introduced the rape shield law, legislation that protects a person's sexual past from being explored during trial."
