Every year, the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives releases its report on the best and worst places to be a woman in Canada. The report looks at 26 cities and identifies areas of strength and weakness when it comes to things like the wage gap, the data gap, domestic violence, and child care.

Does this year’s report show results from the Liberal government’s stated commitment to women and equality? And where it finds it lacking, will it actually change anything? Anne Kingston joins Sarah Boesveld to discuss what the data reveals and reflect on what life is like for women in Canada in 2019.

HOST: Sarah Boesveld, Chatelaine / GUEST: Anne Kingston, Maclean’s
