Ending Gender-Based Violence
Last week, some of our WTG volunteer members had the honour of attending the Generation Equality Forum Paris. We learned of the growing seriousness of gender-based violence, the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the 5-year roadmap to achieve gender equality and ending GBV.
Violence against women is an emergency issue that needs to be addressed with various resources, laws, and political will to end.
The EU has committed 85% of the funds towards gender equality & women’s empowerment by 2025 to make it a reality for women and children. In Canada, the government is committed to providing 110 million to invest in a care system to benefit women and girls.
These resources and collaborations are necessary to end Gender-Based Violence and enforce equality. Let’s continue to do our part in creating this gender utopia in our daily lives. Learn about our programs here: https://womenthatgive.ca/programs
