Investing in Women& Girls

EQUALITY & RIGHTS


This brief video was released earlier this summer just prior to the International Trade Union Confederation conference in Vancouver and is connected with their work with a fund called the MDG3 which is financing 45 activities to improve equality and rights for women and girls worldwide.

This is a good video, but it misses out on the larger context of why women in developing countries are disempowered to begin with and how policies developed in our own part of the world have contributed to creating conditions of poverty and exploitation.

As Canadian women, we need to remind ourselves that we are all connected and that unless we work towards the long term economic and social good of all women on the global horizon, they will not see any meaningful change.
