Advancing Equity and Inclusion: A Guide for Municipalities
Women Transforming Cities is proud to have worked with the City for All Women Initiative (CAWI) in the creation of Advancing Equity and Inclusion: A Guide for Municipalities. Through the work of CAWI and its partners, this document outlines how municipalities can work to better reduce risk to women and girls living in cities.
As is indicated in the guide, “…municipalities are stronger when the aspirations and contributions of women and girls are taken into account. Women and girls face additional challenges if they are also racialized, Aboriginal, young, living with a disabilty, or living in poverty. By applying an equity and inclusion lens that addresses gender differences, as well as other social inequities, municipalities can better respond to the aspirations of ALL people”.
