The federal election is underway and Women’s Shelters Canada is hard at work to ensure that ending violence against women is on the agenda! WSC has reviewed the party platforms of the five federal parties that will be participating in the official election debates to see what they are promising on violence against women and gender-based violence, including a National Action Plan on VAW/GBV. Check it out: https://bit.ly/38ABb7q

I just emailed my local candidates asking them whether they support the National Action Plan on Violence Against Women and Gender-Based Violence. I hope they agree with anti-violence experts across the country that VAW/GBV in Canada is both a human rights and public health crisis of pandemic proportions. We need to ensure the NAP has the best chance at strategic, long-term success. Use Women’s Shelters Canada’s email tool to find out where your candidates stand: https://bit.ly/3jBQhQH

Up for Debate is back and calling for the human rights of all women and girls – trans and cis – and Two Spirit and non-binary people to be fully respected, protected, and upheld. In advance of the federal election, all parties should outline action plans in support of women’s rights, gender justice, and an intersectional feminist economic recovery in their platforms and commitments. We also want to see a focus on women’s rights and gender justice in all federal leaders debates. Let’s get federal party leaders to tell us how they plan to advance women’s rights and gender justice. Join the movement! https://up4debate.ca/
