Hot Pink Paper Campaign

In the lead up to the municipal elections in Vancouver, we conduct deep community engagement, and consult with wise organizations and individuals to identify the priority issues for all women and girls in the city.

 

These issues become a list of policies that we ask individuals candidates for Mayor and city council to commit to implementing if they get elected. A intersectional feminist lens is applied to policies. We call this the Hot Pink Paper Campaign.

A Four Year Campaign

After the election and during the four years of the Mayor and council’s term, WTC tracks and monitors discussions and decisions being made by council to ensure that they are honouring their commitment to women and girls. Our Watch Council group speaks at council meetings, sends letters, meets with councillors and organizes campaigns on key issues.

Stay tuned for when we begin to work on the 2022 Hot Pink Paper Campaign!

Resources from Hot Pink Pathways to a Women-Friendly Vancouver (June 2018)


Thank you to all who attended the Hot Pink Pathways to a Women-friendly Vancouver Event! We had nearly 100 people at the event! We explored opportunities and barriers to women’s political participation in Vancouver and the hot button issues for this election season. The event consisted of two segments. First, our panel spoke to their civic engagement experiences, and the municipal issues they see as key to women’s success. From there, we broke out into a discussion of top election issues, and what municipal candidates can do to make Vancouver work for women and girls. We would also like to thank to our panel speakers for sharing ! Shauna Sylvester and Wai Young, Mayoral candidates; Carrie Bercic, School Board Trustee; Diana Day, School Board Trustee candidate; Adrianne Carr and Melissa DeGenova, City Councillors; and Niki Sharma, former Park Board Chairperson.
