Irwin Cotler on the Rosenzweig Report

“Simply put, empowering women is empowering Canada. The struggle for human rights, for women’s rights, for equality, is the struggle for ourselves. In what we say, and more importantly, in what we do in this case and cause for equality in general, and women’s rights in particular, we will be making a statement about ourselves as a people. Accordingly, we must ensure that the struggle for gender equality is a priority on the national and international agenda.”

Irwin Cotler, Former Minister of Justice & Attorney General of Canada and Member of Parliament; Emeritus Professor of Law (McGill University); International Human Rights Lawyer
