Guiding Principles

The following guiding principles should inform and guide all aspects of the agency’s functioning. We define our guiding principles as:

  • Promoting equity, equality and social and economic justice for all women, and
  • Working within a framework of anti-oppression, anti-racism and feminism*.

We practice feminism by:

  1. Asking questions from a women’s perspective,
  2. Acknowledging a power imbalance to the disadvantage of women, and
  3. Demanding that women’s personal experiences become recognized in public policies.
