Shifting the Power: Opportunities for Innovative Partnerships with Women’s Movements

May 1, 2018

The launch of Canada's Feminist International Assistance Policy in June 2017 included an allocation of $150 million over five years to the Women's Voice and Leadership Program, signaling a commitment to work closely with local women's organizations to advance the Sustainable Development Goals. This presents an extraordinary opportunity for Canada to show global leadership. To explore practical and creative ways of delivering on this commitment, The MATCH International Women's Fund, the Nobel Women's Initiative, and Global Affairs Canada hosted a panel and workshop that tapped the experience and wisdom of international experts, human rights activists, government officials, and civil society partners. This report has been prepared by the Nobel Women's Initiative and The MATCH Fund as a summary of this two-day event.

Violence Against Women and Canada: Effective Approaches and Resources

April 1, 2008

The purpose of this paper is to describe approaches and strategies used in Canada to prevent violence against women. This is part of a much larger project undertaken by MATCH, Cowater and WUSC, who jointly manage the CIDA funded project, Women Defining Peace in Sri Lanka. Women Defining Peace (WDP) is designed to support collaborative action on issues related to national peace. WDP subscribes to the conviction that for women, a peaceful existence means freedom from violence; as well as peace in a country, peace is also an eradication of gendered violence in the household, workplace, and community.
