Progress on Women’s Rights: Missing in Action

Posted on December, 4 2014 by Action Canada
Authored by a network of NGOs, trade unions and independent experts, including Action Canada, Progress on Women’s Rights: Missing in Action reviews Canada’s implementation of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action, and finds that while progress has been made in access to edu­cation, The Shadow Report on Canada’s Implementation of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action, also highlights the areas where inequality has persisted and worsened—particularly in terms of violence against women, political rep­resentation, economic security, access to social services, and the additional barriers to equality faced by Aboriginal women and girls, racialized women, women with disabilities and women from sexual minorities.
