Basic Income Resource Library: Towards Gender Equity

Tamarack Institute
Description / Summary

Gender equality is still far from being realized. In terms of economic parity, the World Economic Forum ranked women and girls in Canada 30 out of 153 countries this year. Now, COVID-19 is amplifying the fact that women are over-represented in precarious and low-wage work, are still the family's unpaid primary caregivers, and are susceptible to domestic violence.

You can access and watch this recorded webinar where a panel of extraordinary female researchers, organizers and advocates explored Basic Income as an important strategy in gender equity actions. Additional resources for your learning are also provided on the site.
