In a newly published Op Ed, Campaign 2000 and partners write about how sitting politicians’ responses to sexual misconduct allegations should move beyond shock and disgust.

Governments at all levels are called on to engage immediately and meaningfully in gender-responsive budgeting and investments to address gender inequity.  This means investing much needed services – such as accessible housing, social services, counselling, legal representation –  for low-income women, girls, gender-diverse people living with disabilities, Indigenous women, and LGTBTQ people across the country affected by violence.

The article concludes: “Without making the badly needed investments in under-funded services and supports, the words of shock by many politicians will be nothing but empty rhetoric. Times are changing; our approach to protecting and investing in the public good needs to change, too.”
