Random GPC Policy of the Day: Equality p84

Today’s Random Green Party Policy of the Day from Vision Green is page 84:

“The Greens will vigorously defend every hard-won victory for women’s rights and for women to advance forward towards full equality in Canada. Women’s equality is fundamental to a just society. Among the best ways to break down barriers and advance opportunities for women are through poverty eradication, national affordable child care, programs to eliminate the financial barriers to post-secondary education, programs for affordable housing, and the adoption of a Genuine Progress Indicator that includes measures of unpaid and voluntary work by women.

Green Party MPs will:

Oppose any possible government move to diminish the right of a woman to a safe, legal abortion. We fully support a woman’s right to choose. We will also expand programs in reproductive rights and education to avoid unwanted pregnancies, and expand supports for low-income mothers.

Pass pay equity legislation, as recommended by the Pay Equity Task Force, immediately implement full pay equity for women employed in the federal sector and develop tax incentives for companies to meet the highest standard of gender and pay equity.

Establish specific job re-entry programs for women with children who want to restart their working lives either part-time or full-time.”

Quick translation: We do not have true democracy until all Canadians enjoy the full benefits of our economic abundance.

Won’t it feel good to vote Green?
