Over the last 50 years, women have been essential actors for change at Development and Peace—Caritas Canada, both in the Global South as well as in our movement here in Canada. Even though women face discrimination, violence and injustice, they are at the heart of change, and that is why we are putting women front and centre during this Lenten campaign. As leaders and pillars of their communities, women are catalysts for change in their struggles for ecological justice, democracy and citizen participation, as well as peace and reconciliation.
To learn more about the role of women and their significance in each of these aspects of development, we are launching a new thematic analysis called “Women at the Heart of Change”.
The publication includes four case studies which illustrate the essential role that women play in the partner organizations and the projects supported by Development and Peace.
