Gender Equality: the facts
67% of Canadians have known a woman who has experienced physical or sexual abuse
1.5 million women in Canada live in poverty
Less than 10% of all sexual assaults are reported to the police
72 cents is what full-time working 
Canadian women earn on average 
for every dollar earned by men
Only 14% of girls in Grade 10 say they feel confident

It’s clear from the facts that women and girls in Canada do not yet have gender equality. At the Canadian Women’s Foundation, we invest in programs that help women and girls move out of violence, out of poverty, and into confidence and leadership. But to create real change, we need every Canadian to help raise awareness and work for change.

GEN1 is our vision for building the first generation in Canada to experience real gender equality. You can help make GEN1 a reality!
