Gender Equality & The Royal Commission on the Status of Women

Dr. Jane Arscott

Year of publication:


The year 2020 marked the 50th anniversary of the Royal Commission on the Status of Women’s ground-breaking report on the conditions of women’s lives in Canada and recommendations on a path towards gender equality and gender justice. This policy briefing note outlines the work undertaken by the RCSW, takes stock of what we have accomplished since then, and calls for a renewed effort of analysis and action given the many challenges women continue to face, not just in Canada but in countries that Canada partners with on trade, security, and environmental protection.
