Vancouver: a city for all women! Vancouver's Women Equity Strategy is unanimously approved!

January 14, 2018

Vancouver: a city for all women: the Women's Equity Strategy was approved unanimously by city council on Wednesday January 17th! It is fantastic to see solid support from VISION, NPA and GREENS on this important work. The Women's Equity Strategy will be implemented over the next ten years from 2018-2028.  The city’s original Gender Equality Strategy was from 2005. 

 

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

  • Safety

  • Violence against women

  • Accessible quality childcare

  • Safe and affordable housing

  • Women's leadership and representation
