When women thrive, we all benefit

We believe that women’s rights must be an election issue, and we are calling on all federal parties to make meaningful commitments to change women’s lives for the better, in Canada and abroad.

We are part of the Alliance for Women’s Rights, a network of close to 100 Canadian organizations: unions, women’s rights organization, aboriginal groups and NGOs. We have come together in the Up for Debate campaign, launched this week on Parliament Hill. We are asking federal political leaders to commit to a debate on women’s issues before the next federal election.
