Community of Practice: Women's Health, Poverty and Discrimination

- IN PROGRESS -

 

This project is financed by the Secrétariat à la condition féminine du Québec. Duration: Two years. It will conclude on March 31, 2021.

Its goal is to create a community of practice. The purpose of this community of practice is to facilitate the sharing of expertise and tools between individuals working on the issue of inequality experienced by Montreal women related to gender, health, poverty and discrimination.

Proposed by the Health Committee of the TGFM, this project has an initial target of mobilizing contributors who will animate the community of practice and analyze the relationship between health problems and women's poverty using an intersectional feminist approach. During its second phase, the implementation of a virtual community of practice will allow for other contributors to be invited to participate in discussions. At the project's close, an informational tool will be developed on issues of gender inequality in the context of health. It will be distributed among populations who may be affected, service providers and the general public.

Women and Their Relationship to the City

- IN PROGRESS -

 

This project is financed by the Canadian Department for Women and Gender Equality for a four-year duration. It seeks to identify and promote changes that could make the city more inclusive and adapted to the needs and interests of all women.

The first phase of the project began in November 2019. It involves supporting intersectional feminist reflection around women's relationship to the city. We launched the Feminists for the Right to the City webinar series in winter 2021. These events explore the spaces that shape Tio’tià:ke/Montreal island from different intersectional feminist perspectives. With the panellists and the participants, we identify issues that pose obstacles to the women's right to the city, but more importantly, we will draw out perspectives for action to make the city more inclusive.

See and hear the panels

We have also launched a survey to reach out to women's groups and mixed organizations with feminist concerns who do not have time to attend webinars. This consultation aims to take a snapshot of concerns, commitments, and tools for intervening on urban issues with an intersectional feminist perspective.

Do the Rights Thing

- COMPLETED -

 

This project, financed by the Canadian Department for Women and Gender Equality in partnership with the DisAbled Women's Network (DAWN Canada) and Action des femmes handicapées (Montréal), is on the topic of access to jobs and services for Deaf and/or disabled women. Its two-year duration was completed in March 2020.

Catherine Théroux, project officer, was mandated to conduct the Montreal segment of this pan-Canadian project. The first phase of the project consisted of creating and facilitating discussion groups and individual interviews. Following the analysis of those discussions, training and informational workshops were developed. These will be offered in the winter of 2020 to Deaf and/or disabled women, employers, service providers and unions. These workshops aim to improve employability and access to services for Deaf and/or disabled women.
