G7 gender council calling for pay equity, more funding for reproductive health

OTTAWA — The G7 gender equality advisory council is calling on G7 leaders to take concrete actions to ensure women and girls achieve pay equity, have mandated opportunities on corporate boards and better access to reproductive health services.

Those are just some of the 60 recommendations delivered to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau by the advisory council set up to help bring feminism to the gathering of world leaders later this week.

In its report, the council says the time has come for G7 leaders to end gender inequality and capitalize on powerful grassroots change movements like #MeToo that are pushing for an end to discrimination, harassment and violence against women.

The recommendations include a call for increased domestic and international public funding for gender-based health care, including sexual and reproductive health and rights.

There is also a call for G7 countries to require corporations and large public-sector employers to increase the number of women on boards and to create incentives for the private sector to achieve pay equity for women by 2030 — with penalties for not complying.

The gender equality advisory council is made up of several high-profile global business and social leaders, including billionaire philanthropist Melinda Gates, Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai and Christine Lagarde, the head of the International Monetary Fund.
