Oxfam Canada was part of the 175 organizations who together undertook the Up for Debate campaign and called for measureable commitments from all parties on advancing women’s rights in the lead up to the 2015 federal election. This campaign created a Canada-wide conversation on gender justice and equality, and got 4 major party leaders to dedicate an exclusive 20 minute interview to discussing their women’s rights commitments pre-election. The first and only women’s rights focused debate by Canadian federal leaders was in 1986! With help from key media outlets, the premier of these interviews along with political analysis was broadcast live from Toronto’s Isabel Bader theatre just weeks before the election.
