Head Start London is a dynamic and active group of young women working with Councillor Joni Baechler to identify, highlight and create public discussion around the barriers to young women's participation in local government.
This Head Start group has undertaken extensive city-wide consultation on the issue of the underrepresentation of women in politics generally and young women in local government specifically. The group facilitated eight public forums on the topic, including active social media participation through twitter at each event.
Currently, Head Start London is continuing the consultative process to outline the content for a brief documentary film intended to highlight issues of underrepresentation of women in politics in Canada and to serve as a "Call to Action" to address the issue of underrepresentation of women in government in Canada. This project will be brought to fruition with the generous and significant support for the City of London.
