Another word for equity and diversity.
When we talk about equity and intersectionality in policy making, we are talking about recognizing women and girls as a diverse group who have distinct and varying needs. (Because we are, and we do!) For example, policies may impact women and girls differently based on their education, age, race, income, class, immigration status, ability or sexual orientation.
We ask candidates and parties to make a commitment to:
- Create and use an equity/intersectional lens framework for policy development and evaluation.
- Collect data that reflects the diversity of women and girls and their needs.
