The Best and Worst Places to be a Woman in Canada 2016: The Gender Gap in Canada's 25 Biggest Cities

Summary: 

This annual study provides a snapshot of the gaps in men and women’s access to economic security, personal security, education, health, and positions of leadership in Canada’s largest 25 metropolitan areas. It measures these gaps in a given community in order to capture inequalities that can be attributed, at least in part, to discrimination based on gender; it also serves as a reminder that, with the right choices and policies, these gaps can be closed. According to this year's ranking, Victoria is the best city to be a woman (for the second year in a row), while big gaps in employment and high poverty rates for women put Windsor in last place. - See more at: https://www.policyalternatives.ca/publications/reports/best-and-worst-pl...
