About this site
Policy4Women is an initiative of Engendering Public Engagement, Democratizing Public Space, a community-university collaboration exploring new ways to bring feminist voices into discussions of public policy in Canada. A twenty-person team of university and community-based researchers is testing five approaches to engaging feminists in different locations in a dialogue around a new gender justice agenda for Canada. The results will inform a larger project of public engagement organized around the 50th anniversary of the report of the Royal Commission on the Status of Women in 2020.
