Two Alberta women are hoping to encourage people of all ages and beliefs to wear their political pride.
Sarah Elder-Chamanara and Marcie Hawranik recently launched Madame Premier, a clothing line they say is meant to get more people, especially young women, interested in politics.
“We actually think it’s a really noble career,” said Elder-Chamanara. “We need more good people in politics.”
“More good women, more good men, more diversity and gender representation.”
Madame Premier launched its first series of clothing designs, the “Election Collection,” several weeks ago to what they say was a hugely positive response.
The clothing is gender neutral with toddler and baby sizes also available, and all sport a variety of pro-political sayings, like “future prime minister” and “#PoliNerd.”
“We want little girls and little boys to think it’s totally normal, which it is, for women to be in politics,” said Elder-Chamanara.
The pair say it’s especially important to share their message now, during a time where there are no female premiers.
They say next series of clothing from Madame Premier is set to launch on the company’s website in the next few weeks.
