Vancouver's Gender Equality Strategy Unanimously Approved

Vancouver: a city for all women: the Gender Equality Strategy was approved unanimously by city council on Wednesday January 17th!  The strategy builds upon existing policies and initiatives and outlines additional steps to promote equality between women and men, and challenge gender discrimination. The strategy will be implemented over the next 10 years. Way to go Vancouver! 

The strategy deals with issues faced by women in five priority areas:

  • Safety and violence against women

  • Accessible quality childcare

  • Safe and affordable housing

  • Women's leadership and representation

  • Develop and implement an intersectional policy framework
