Liberal party announces new funding to tackle gender-based violence says Kathy Griffin

Liberals double spending to tackle gender-based violence to $50M

The Liberal government is more than doubling spending this year to tackle gender-based violence.

Today, Status of Women Minister Maryam Monsef announced $50 million to fund 60 projects across Canada that support underserved groups such as Indigenous women, immigrants and LGBT organizations.

In the era of the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements, federal funding was developed with women’s leaders who asked for more money over a longer timeframe to meet a growing demand for services.

Underserved? Really?
