Leader’s view LEADER’S VIEW Our efforts will help the world’s poorest and most vulnerable people Canada will continue to show global leadership in bringing people together to help to achieve lasting progress, writes Justin Trudeau 4 th Summit 2015 Elected This year, Canada’s theme for International Women’s Day is #EqualityMatters, which reminds us that society is better – more prosperous, peaceful, secure and cohesive – when women’s rights are respected, when women are valued and empowered, and when they lead the way in our communities. Although we have taken significant steps toward gender equality, we know that much more work needs to be done. Women around the world continue to receive lower pay and fewer promotions. They are denied legal control over their bodies and reproductive health. They face much higher rates of harassment and verbal, physical and sexual abuse. In impoverished communities, women are the least likely to have access to healthcare, the last ones to eat and the most vulnerable to the hardships brought on by disease. That is why we will continue to place gender equality and rights, and the empowerment of women and girls, at the heart of our international development work … Statement on International Women’s Day, 8 March 2017 Greener energy The world’s markets are becoming increasingly integrated, and global demand for clean technology and renewable energy is growing quickly.
