Women Hold Up Half the Sky
At 4:30 pm today, the Gomberg for Mayor platform plank on women will be released at Good for Her, a women’s bookstore and sex shop located at 175 Harbord.
“Women do more than their share of the world’s work but receive few of the financial rewards. Around the world women are on the front lines battling the devastating effects of government cutbacks. Massive cuts to services affect the whole community, and put a greater burden on women struggling to meet the needs of their families. Women on social assistance are the worst affected as benefits do not come close to meeting the spiraling costs of housing and basic food needs.”
