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

Must reads for the Week of May 23

NewspaperFrom a blog about how we need more girls in movies – strong, smart, silly, funny girls – to children dressed up as influential women in history, this week was all about girls.

But don't forget about the women. New research has shown that women with exceptional grades are often being paid as much as their less academically successful male colleagues. Or in many cases, not being paid at all as women have been shown to be the highest percentage filling unpaid internship roles.

While the RCMP has released a report about the missing and murdered Aboriginal women, no action is being taken to end the violence.
