This Mother's Day Statement was released May 10, 2006 by the National Association of Women and the Law (NAWL) and I thought would be of interest to Canadians on Care2.



"Mr. Harper, on Mothers Day, women want
more that just flowers: we want real equality now!"


May 10, 2006

 

"We are asking that the funding agreements for childcare services be maintained, that the $1,200 that was announced in the 2006 budget for child care be given to women as a tax credit; that maternity and parental benefits be improved so that women across Canada receive at least as much as they would under Québec's more generous system; that provinces not be allowed to claw-back the National Child Benefit when parents are on social assistance; that a federal pay equity law be introduced and that the working conditions of part-time and precarious workers be improved" says Andrée Côté, Director of Law Reform for the National Association of Women and the Law.

The Canadian Labour Congress, the Québec Federation of Women, the National Organization of Immigrant and Visible Minority Women of Canada, the Canadian Research Institute for the Advancement of Women, the Canadian Council of Muslim Women, YWCA Canada, the Provincial Advisory Council on the Status of Women of Newfoundland and Labrador, the Ontario Association of Interval and Transition Houses are a few of the many organizations that have endorsed this Statement.

"On the day of the 2006 budget vote and at the beginning of a new session of Parliament, we hope that all MP's and Senators will actively defend and promote policies that address the specific needs of mothers and that promote
their equality rights" says Andrée Côté.
