The Canadian Federation of University Women (CFUW) was among the members of GEAR (Gender Equality Architecture Reform) that recently sent suggestions for UN Women’s priorities beyond 100 days. CFUW recommended the following:
- Meet the Millennium Development Goals with an emphasis on: Primary education for all; Elimination of violence against women and girls; Women’s economic sustainability (to eliminate poverty); Adequate food, clean water, shelter; Access to health care ‐ with special emphasis on maternal and child health, combating HIV/AIDS, and universal access to vaccinations and mosquito nets to eliminate the spread of disease.
- Implement UNSCRs 1325, 1820, 1882, 1888 and 1889 on peace and security for women and girls.
- Focus on the achievement of the goals of the Beijing Platform for Action and CEDAW with attention to leadership development for women.
