While the Harper government boasts progress in women’s equality, a new report from labour and women’s groups says that Canadian women have lost considerable ground in the last 15 years.

The report, entitled Reality Check: Women in Canada and the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action Fifteen Years On, will be used at the Beijing +15 meeting at the United Nations in New York next month.

CUPE is one of the many signatories on the report. Supporters hope that the document will serve as a “reality check” describing Canada’s lagging performance on women’s equality.
