It’s visible in the media. It’s visible at work. It’s visible at City Hall. It’s visible that women and men are treated differently in Canada, despite being a first world country.
With this visibility comes a recent report from the Canadian Center for Policy Alternatives (CCPA) on how women are faring in 25 of Canada’s largest cities. The infographic released shows Victoria, BC as the best city for women to live while the Kitchener, Waterloo area in Ontario, ranked the worst. The rankings for based on the gaps that exist between men and women in these communities.
While we congratulate Victoria for their efforts in decreasing the gender gap, CCPA says the study isn’t about winning a title, but about identifying what works in one community and bringing it home to another—so that every city in Canada is a good place to be a woman.
Although the feminism movement is becoming more powerful than ever before, it’s evident that there’s still some significant work that needs to be done. What can we do to help progress this movement? Comment below!
