On the Frontlines - NDP Offers Women's Equality Challenge

From the NDP Website Yesterday:
"OTTAWA – The NDP issued an “equality challenge” to political leaders today in Ottawa. Recently, women have been losing ground in their fight for equality as the Harper Conservatives and Liberals in Ottawa have dramatically cut programs and moved backwards on women’s issues."

The Action Plan outlines the following:

Fairness for women - Action plan of the NDP federal caucus
1. Fairness for women at work
2. A better work-family balance
3. An end to violence against women
4. Making sure women are heard – in public, in politics
5. Fairness for marginalized women
6. Equality for women around the globe

I encourage you to read the rest of the plan on the website!
