We work with political institutions including, but not limited to, political parties, campaigns, electoral riding associations, as well as unions and grassroots movements. We provide evidence-based and proven models for identifying and addressing sexual violence that result in ongoing commitments and preventative measures toward creating safer spaces for women in politics.

Young women are entering political institutions at high rates; however, this does not translate into the number of women candidates, elected officials, or in senior leadership within political institutions. With more than 80% of young women with a median age of 25 leaving politics due to experiencing sexual violence, we must make a collective commitment to challenging gender-based violence and sexism in Canadian politics.

Are you committed to ending gender-based sexual violence in our political institutions?

I pledge

  • to invest time in learning about recognizing and addressing sexual violence;

  • to learn about or support the creation of sexual violence education and prevention policies and practices within political spaces; and

  • to intervene when I witness gender-based sexual violence and not be a bystander.
