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

Must Reads for the Week of November 14

Newspaper stackThis week we read two studies by the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives – one on the progress of gender equality in Canada and the other on the real cost of child care in Canada’s big cities.

Women of colour are speaking out against racism and sexism within the workplace, legal system and society at large while a powerful read explains the ongoing ignorance for Aboriginal women’s lives in Canada.

  Watch a guy clearly annoyed by social ignorance, explaining the difference between feminism and humanism, and the new white house bystander focused anti-rape PSA.

Time is under the spotlight for a ridiculous decision to want to ban the word feminist while teen girls make a funny video against catcalling.
