Progress Not Promises

Today, there are still too many girls married off as children or not allowed to go to school; too many women dying of AIDS or forbidden to bank the money they earn.

This International Women’s Day, over forty inspiring activists from across the African continent, are demanding leaders make progress, not promises for women everywhere. Sign their open letter and join the global fight for equality.

Because none of us are equal until all of us are equal.


Demand more action in the fight against AIDS

Today, about 1,000 young women will be infected with HIV. Tomorrow, it will be another 1,000. One week from now, nearly 7,000 young women will have contracted HIV.

The grim news: AIDS isn’t a disease of the past, it’s a crisis now. The great news: we have the means to end it.


The Canadian thing to do!
