Deborah Stienstra, Gail Baikie, Jane Stinson and Leah Levac examine why it is necessary to have a gendered, intersectional analysis for evaluating resource development projects as a part of the environmental assessment process.
Quite a lot has changed for women since the Charter of Rights and Freedom was approved in 1985, and those of us working for equality and gender-based analysis have seen many improvements. And yet, we also know once we examine the impacts of policies on diverse women like Indigenous and disabled women some things have not changed. Susan Manning, Gail Baikie and Deborah Stienstra share their research findings on women with disabilities in Northern Canada.
It has been ten years since the government of Canada signed the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. Ottawa's first report on our progress in furthering those rights in Canada’s domestic and international policies shows a mixed record to date, but also many opportunities for the new federal government to makes its mark in this important domain. What can the government of Canada do to rebuild its role as a promoter of global disability rights, particularly through its diplomacy and international development cooperation? Deborah Stienstra and Steve Estey share their evidence-based ideas for action.
