Introduction

Gender Equality means Men & Women are treated as equals paid fairly and not judged due to gender. 

Hello my name is Brooke McAllister I am 12 years of age a Canadian resident I have been studying gender equality for about 1 year now, I am a Child Activist and I believe in equality which is why I am going to talk to you about some issues invlving gender inequality in Canada .  I Hope you take the time to read my petition over and hear what I have to say. Today I am going to educate you about Gender Equality in Canada, Teach you about the issues regarding Gender Equality happening in our Everyday lives how our civilization doesn't realize the affects of Gender inequality & reasons how its causing insecurities in 6/10 in Canada ( Just over half). I Would like to state these facts are all recent facts happening within the past 3 years in Canada.

The Problem

 Gender Inequality has been a huge problem Globally for decades & Canada is one of the many countries in this world that has so much Gender Inequality whether its Pay or judging what someones doing or putting them down because of their gender some examples of this are The Number of men scientists in Canada, 75% of men in Canada are scientists and 25% of scientists are women Why are they not equal numbers?. Secondly as I mentioned Pay in Canada.  In May 2017, women were paid 87 cents compared to men's 1.00$ even though they worked the exact same shifts yet they were paid unequally. Thirdly the number of Government Chairs in the House of Commons One of the biggest problems in my opinion in Canada is that currently  27 % of women in the house of commons have a chair and the rest belong to men why are there more men? Why is our system outdated? Why hasn't it changed if its able to accept new things or make new laws so quickly? Think why doesn't the government change this and why aren't more women elected?, Fourthly Insecurity in women. An online survey found 7/10 Canadian women feeling inequality in social and political events, another online survey found 6/10 women thinking its hard to see them self as a leader, This is most likely because most people in power are men, Think about it have you ever seen a woman as prime minister? This inequality causes women to loose their self esteem and feel more insecure which was also stated on the same website. Lastly conducting into treating people different due to their gender The Pink Tax. As of April 26 2016 Women pay 43% more than men for personal care products( shampoo, conditioner, body wash, razors, deodorant, etc) simply due to their Gender How is this fair? Shouldn't the prices be equal? They're the exact same product with a different label just because one is pink and decorated more "girly" how does that change anything? The Pink tax is very important to be ended because women shouldn't waste almost half of the price of a male product just because its made more "girly" not only is the Pink Tax in Canada its happening globally from places such as the States, and UK This is not right and should be stopped immediately . 

In Conclusion,

These reasons I have brought to your attention today are all true such as the Pink Tax and should not be happening no one should be charged more just because they're a female wanting to buy pads or deodorant then paid less at there jobs and no one should have to feel insecure due to what the governments choosing to do, These actions cannot be fixed unless we make a change, we cannot live in a country where people are feeling in equal, or women are not getting a fair pay then are being charged more for personal health care products. These reasons are why I am fighting for Gender Equality so we can get equality for all in Canada. Please take the Time to help me make a change all across Canada and gain the Gender Equality we deserve, Canada should not live in an outdated society, if we can update and accept so many things nowadays why is this so hard to change? If You Agree with me take the time to share , sign , & help support Gender Equality throughout Canada so we can live freely without being held back due to the gender we were born with, or having to pay extra for health care products due to being a female, because women don't choose to be women and men aren't inequal to women either these rules are not who we are as Canada and we have progressed so much so please help me make this change.

Sincerely yours,
