Sunday marked five years since Christy Clark was sworn into office as British Columbia's 35th premier.

And that's not the only milestone Clark is hitting this week, as she's set to become the longest-serving female premier in Canadian history.

She'll take over from he previous record holder, former Nunavut premier Eva Aariak.

Clark says the fact that five years and two days is the benchmark for that title means there is still much work to be done in reaching gender equality, not just in politics but in all fields.
