About the Report Card

The COVID-19 BC Gender Equality Report Card assesses the BC government’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic in terms of impacts for gender justice. It explores six issue areas: access to justice; economic security; freedom from gender-based violence; health care; justice for people who are criminalized; and the rights of parents, children, and youth. Insights from dialogues with members of PACE Society, Urban Native Youth Association, and the Coalition Against Trans Antagonism ground the Report Card in firsthand community knowledge.

This report is part of our larger Gender Equality Report Card project and can be considered an addendum to the BC Gender Equality Report Card 2019/2020published in May 2020.

West Coast LEAF warmly thanks the community dialogue participants and organizers, research volunteers, community reviewers, and our generous project funders, the Law Foundation of BC and Health Sciences Association of BC.
