Women's Rights

What are Women's Rights? 

Women’s rights are human rights. Equality rights are of particular importance, given the unequal treatment women have experienced in Canada. A number of legal instruments exist in Canada to protect equality for women.

One is the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, which gives constitutional protection to individual human rights. It applies to relationships between an individual and government, while relationships between individuals are covered in certain areas by the Canadian Human Rights Act (CHRA), as well as provincial and territorial human rights legislation.
