23/09/2020 - The Conseil des Montréalaises members are proud to present their latest statement : « Becoming a Feminist City: Statement of the Conseil des Montréalaises Concerning the Bilan du plan d'action 2015-2018 Pour une participation égalitaire des femmes et des hommes à la vie de Montréal. »
This statement is a response to the evaluation of 2015-2018 action plan, Bilan du plan d'action 2015-2018 Pour une participation égalitaire des femmes et des hommes à la vie de Montréal, published by the City of Montréal in 2019. In it, we present CM's members' main observations and thinking on the achievements of the 2015-2018 action plan. We highlight advances the municipal government has made in recent years and the many ongoing challenges to achieving gender equality and equality among women in Montréal. The crisis generated by the COVID-19 pandemic has exposed the fact that women are the primary instigators of social and community cohesiveness while also constituting one of the city's most vulnerable populations. It is thus all the more important that the City of Montréal continue its efforts to advance equality in future social development action plans.
