HER SAY HER WAY PLEDGE

Fight for an equitable pandemic recovery with the York Region Women's Foundation


As Canada begins to move toward a post-pandemic world, many are still left facing the aftermath of the pandemic – particularly racialized women. “In lots of ways, people have called it the women’s pandemic,” said Andrea Gunraj, vice-president of public engagement at the Canadian Women’s Foundation. Research shows that marginalized women with intersectional identities have encountered unique and difficult struggles both throughout the pandemic and in pandemic recovery. As we continue forward, we must ask:

“What support is needed to form an inclusive pandemic recovery plan?”
