Women for Change Pledge

Income inequality seriously impacts women in Canada. Public services such as health care, education, child care and social services are dominated by women workers, are more often accessed by women and, as these services decrease, the responsibility for caregiving is more often taken up by women. Already at a financial disadvantage due to a lack of pay equity, these cuts to public services are increasing the strain placed on women. 

This pledge is a tool for women to talk to other women about the issue of rising income inequality and pledge to work on behalf of women to make Canada a fairer place to live.
