In her presentation to the attendees, a representative from Canada stated that her country is devoted to furthering gender equality and defending women’s rights.
The fundamental goal of prestigious Best Diplomats was to strengthen women’s empowerment and their efforts to make the world a more equal and prosperous place. This summit was attended by 175 delegates from more than 55 countries, who expressed their diplomatic support for the cause of women’s rights and gender parity.
“Canada firmly holds that the empowerment of women is not only a matter of fundamental justice but also a driving force for societal advancement and economic prosperity, and has earned global recognition as a leading advocate for women’s rights and empowerment, both within our borders and on the international stage,” the prime minister said. In addition, Canada actively engages in worldwide efforts to promote gender equality. “We extend substantial support as a significant contributor to international organizations dedicated to addressing women’s issues.”
Here are some of the concerns concerning women’s rights in Canada. These include leadership and women. According to statistics, six in ten women believe it is difficult for them to imagine themselves as leaders. At times, more than 1.5 million Canadian women are low-income. Along with that, there are also issues of gender-based violence, sexual assault and harassment, and obstacles for girls.
The high levels of intimate partner and sexual violence experienced by women in Canada have a significant impact on their health and well-being. Violence against women reduces women’s safety, limits where they may work, live, travel, or spend their time, and jeopardizes their possibilities and health.
The Government of Canada has taken many initiatives to build on the federal gender-based violence strategy and advance the development of a national action plan to end violence, with a focus on ensuring that anyone experiencing violence has consistent and timely access to protection and services.
Professional training programs, programs for rehabilitating abusers, public awareness campaigns, encouraging women’s empowerment, including men and boys, nonviolence education and gender equality for men and women, and dispelling gender preconceptions.
