Dauphin, Canada

7 women have now spoken out against former Dauphin MLA Stan Struthers, for inappropriate tickling and harassment.

The incidents were reported to the NDP party back in 2010 and 2015, and nothing was done.

Manitoba NDP Leader Wab Kinew talks about the role of women in changing the culture:

“We also want to have more women run for our party in the future, and I think that’s really important, because in order to change the culture in politics and in the environment, we need more women in positions of leadership.”

Kinew has called on stronger party policies and an investigation into the incidents.
