Gender Equality Week 2019:
“Until all of us have made it,
none of us have made it”
We celebrate this Gender Equality Week in honour of the Honourable Rosemary Brown, one of the Canadian Women’s Foundation’s Founding Mothers.
Rosemary Brown (1930-2003), first Black woman to be elected to political office in Canada, was an accomplished feminist, activist, and human rights champion. She was passionate in the fight for rights for all women and people of all backgrounds, identities, and experiences. She knew we won’t get anywhere in our quest for rights and dignity if we don’t pay attention to under-heard voices and make things better for those facing the greatest barriers and discriminations. Brown famously said: “Until all of us have made it, none of us have made it.”
These are cherished words that the Canadian Women’s Foundation continues to live by. Now that Canada’s moving toward a federal election, we ask you to ACT NOW to boost equity, rights, and quality of life for diverse women, girls, trans, and non-binary people. Because none of us will make it until ALL of us have made it.
How can you take action NOW?
