The new season of Trent Voices, The TRENT Magazine Live/Trent Alumni Affairs podcast show, is launching later this month. It will kick off with a "Women in Politics" mini-series that will feature interviews with successful Trent alumnae politicians, both past and present, including: Skeena-Bulkley MP Sheila Malcolmson '85, Nanaimo-Ladysmith NDP MP Marjolaine Boutin-Sweet '74, and long-standing Peterborough mayor Syvlia Sutherland '68.
