Equal Voice is proud to present the Blueprint for Gender Sensitive Parliaments report. This report provides background on the Systemic Change initiative undertaken by Equal Voice and includes research findings, lessons learned, and policy recommendations for legislatures in Canada.

While each jurisdiction is unique in its governance, parliamentary rules, and culture, the goal of the Systemic Change initiative is to identify and address some of the key systemic barriers within Canadian legislative assemblies that contribute to the under-representation of women. Funded by the Department for Women and Gender Equality, this project strives to achieve gender-sensitive parliaments and a culture conducive to retaining more women in politics.
