This report reviews Canada’s implementation of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action, and finds that while progress has been made in access to edu­cation, it also highlights the areas where inequality has persisted and worsened—particularly in terms of violence against women, political rep­resentation, economic security, access to social services, and the additional barriers to equality faced by Aboriginal women and girls, racialized women, women with disabilities and women from sexual minorities.
