CANADIAN MEN AND WOMEN ARE JUST EQUAL
St. Petersburg has recently held the Forum of Women Parliamentarians as part of 137th IPU Assembly. Our journalists spoke to pam Damoff, a delegate from Canada. She told us, why Canadians are equal to one another.
Pam Damoff undoubtedly says: “In Canada we have gender equality”. According to her, Canadian men and women participate in economy and politics equally. Such a result was achieved with the help of Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms. It guarantees respect for the rights of any person and shuts down gender discrimination.
Describing modern Canadian women, Pam Damoff says: “They are just equal to men”.
