Women in New Brunswick Politics
April 15th, 1919
After almost 50 years of debating the issue, New Brunswick women are granted the right to vote in provincial elections on this date. It would be 48 years later that the first woman, Brenda Robertson, is elected as an MLA. Brenda paved the way for the 46 other women who have had the honour of serving as MLAs since, including myself.
The portraits of all women who have served as members of the New Brunswick Legislative Assembly are on display in the lobby of Chancery Place, home of the Premier's office.
