Nearly all-male health committee swapping in women for women’s health study

NDP health critic Don Davies, who introduced the motion at committee to launch the women’s health study last year, said he is asking women in his party to take his seat for the hearings.

“While the NDP has only one seat on the health committee, I have invited women MPs from our caucus to sit in my place for the purpose of this study,” he said in a statement emailed by the party. “I have also submitted a list of witnesses for this study, 100 per cent of whom are women.

“The NDP looks forward to seeing this long overdue study on women’s health unfold in the coming weeks.”
