In a sit-down interview with CTV National News Chief Anchor and Senior Editor Lisa LaFlamme, Clark said that the reason issues such as women’s health and sexual violence remain so pervasive is due to a lack of women at the table.

“I am of the view that if women were much more prominent in decision making at every level, we would not have the degree of conflict, violence, inequality, hunger, that we see in the world today,” Clark said Wednesday at the Canadian Conference on Global Health, held in Toronto.

“Because I believe that while not every woman in leadership acts in a way that is supportive of women, most do.”
