COVID-19: How Your Support Helps Women and Girls During the Pandemic


The Canadian Women’s Foundation is the go-to organization for media when it comes to news stories on gender equality in Canada.

The Foundation’s spokespeople are often called on to comment about:

  • Gender-based violence, including intimate partner and family violence, sexual assault, harassment, trafficking, and educating teens about healthy relationship skills.
  • Women’s poverty and economic development, including programs for women in skilled trades, small businesses, and social purpose enterprises, as well as wrap-around supports like micro-loans or childcare subsidies.
  • Barriers that girls face and girls’ empowerment, as well as strategies for building confidence, resilience, critical thinking, media literacy, mentorship, and encouraging careers in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math).
  • Collaborative and diverse leadership for women and girls.
