In Ellected's first episode, host Sarah Elder-Chamanara speaks with Annamie Paul, leader of the federal Green Party of Canada.
Annamie and Sarah discuss getting involved in politics at a young age, being the only woman federal political party leader in Canada, getting women to run and win, navigating family and politics, the possibility of a 2021 federal election, and how women simply existing in political spaces is “harder to imagine yourself in a role that you have never seen anyone like you in before.”
Sarah Elder-Chamanara is the founder, creative director and owner of Madame Premier, a feminist and political clothing company based in Calgary, Alberta. With the underlying principle of seeing more women and diversity in politics, elected and in backrooms, at every level, Madame Premier creates the opportunity for conversations about why politics needs to change. Madame Premier has been featured in the National Post, CBC, Forbes and Toronto Star. Sarah is currently planning on opening Madame Premier’s first retail location in summer 2021 in Calgary.
