COVID-19 BC Gender Equality Report Card
About the report card
The COVID-19 BC Gender Equality Report Card assesses the BC government’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic in terms of impacts for gender justice. It explores six issue areas: access to justice; economic security; freedom from gender-based violence; health care; justice for people who are criminalized; and the rights of parents, children, and youth. Insights from dialogues with members of PACE Society, Urban Native Youth Association, and the Coalition Against Trans Antagonism ground the Report Card in firsthand community knowledge.
West Coast LEAF warmly thanks the community dialogue participants and organizers, research volunteers, community reviewers, and our generous project funders, the Law Foundation of BC and Health Sciences Association of BC.
West Coast LEAF was grateful to partner with Courthouse Libraries BC to offer a one-hour webinar overview of the COVID-19 BC Gender Equality Report Card on Monday, March 1, 2021. View the webinar slides.
