The gender pay gap is a human rights crisis in Canada. Indigenous women, racialized women, immigrant women and women with disabilities bear the greatest burden of this systemic sex discrimination at work. But women across all sectors of the economy, at all income levels, and all educational levels face pay discrimination that punishes them throughout their working lives and into retirement. In the wake of #MeToo and international movements for pay transparency, intersectional feminist organizing is bringing new energy to the fight to close the gender pay gap. Learn the law! Build the strategy! Join the fight!
