war on women

4

I think the idea to focus on 51% of the population, the worlds poorest -women is a good idea. Because we make up 51 % of the population all of the above topics listed could be discussed/ written about from the perspective of women, indigenous issues, colonialism, poverty, democracy, healthcare, climate change, ect all have specific and different implications on women and all worthy of discussion. And also violence against women affects one in three women worldwide (thats a UN conservative figure I might add). A woman's issue would be able to focus on women and still cover a broad range of issues.

What strategies are working, which are not? To create a democratic, sustainable and equitable Canada we need more than more information, we need on the ground tactics and strategies to create the world we want to live in.
