abstract
On June 2, 1997, residents of Halifax went to the polls to choose between Mary Clancy, the incumbent Liberal Member of Parliament, and Alexa McDonough, leader of the federal New Democratic Party of Canada. It was slated to be one of the most highly contested races in the country and one of the rare occasions when two strong women candidates were running against each other -- The movie highlights the accomplishments of women in politics and the problems many women face participating in the political process.
