#W7Canada: Recommendations

W7 Summit

We’ve brought together feminist experts on a range of issues that affect people not just in G7 countries, but across the globe.

Research shows that when women’s diverse perspectives are included at the table, both the discussion and outcomes are more effective and inclusive.

We will be framing the discussion around several thematic areas.

Women's Economic Empowerment

Ensuring women’s economic rights through systems change and collective empowerment to address the unequal economics of women’s work and unpaid labour.

Peace and Security

Building a more peaceful and secure world by advancing the Women, Peace and Security Agenda, addressing the gendered dimensions of global displacement and working towards prevention and disarmament.

Climate Change

Working together to address climate change, specifically the gendered impacts of climate change and promoting women’s leadership in adaptation.

Feminist Movement-Building

Advancing women’s transformative leadership through feminist movement-building including best practices in innovative funding mechanisms for feminist movements.

Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights

Safeguarding gains in SRHR by tackling unequal power dynamics grounded in social constructions of gender and patriarchal attempts to control women’s bodies and choices.

Violence Against Women

Shedding a light on the myriad types of violence women experience, especially LGBTQ2 communities and racialized women, and promoting transformative actions to ensure women live a life free of violence.

Intersectional Feminism

Tackling inequality and marginalization recognizing the multiple and intersecting aspects of identity that play out in our lives and experiences, such as gender, age, disability, ethnicity, class, race and others.
