Canadian Feminists in Support of Bill C-16

We are writing to support Bill C-16, a bill designed to protect gender identity and gender expression in the Canadian Human Rights Act and Criminal Code.

As feminists we believe that this bill will further the rights of all Canadians, especially transgender and gender diverse people living in Canada today. Given the fact that transgender women are more likely to face poverty, homelessness, barriers to education, and violence than are cisgender (non-transgender) women, this bill is deeply needed and long overdue.

In the name of feminism, we strongly urge the Canadian Senate to pass Bill C-16 without further delay.

(If applicable, please include your organization or professional details in the Comments.)

Féministes canadiens pour le projet de loi C-16

Nous vous écrivons pour supporter le projet de loi C-16, celui-ci protège l'identité de genre et l'expression de genre dans la charte canadienne des droits et dans le code criminel. Étant féministes, nous croyons que ce projet de loi protège tous les Canadiens, mais surtout les transgenres et les personnes de diversité de genre vivant au Canada maintenant. Compte tenu du fait que les femmes transgenres font face à la pauvreté, à l'itinérance, ont des obstacles en éducation, et sont victimes de violence comparativement aux femmes cisgenres (non-transgenres), ce projet de loi est profondément nécessaire et tardif.

Au nom du féminisme, nous prions le sénat canadien de passer le projet de loi C-16 sans aucuns délais additionnels.

    In my circle of close friends I have two that prefer not to identify as girl or boy and use the pronoun "they" and one friend who is a trans girl. In my children's school, there are two kids that identify as trans. I believe all these people and everyone else who isn't binary or cis should have the same rights as me.
