Asian Women for Equality is a grassroots feminist group.

 

We work as a progressive force to change societal attitudes towards women, especially women of Asian descent; to advance equality for Asian women; and to create opportunities for Asian women to have meaningful participation and to take leadership roles in civil society. Asian Women for Equality sees prostitution as a form of male violence against women that can be eradicated.

Asian Women for Equality's membership represents a range of life experiences common to Asian women, including prostituted women, immigrants, naturalized Canadians, permanent residents, temporary residents, foreign students and Canadian-born offspring of Asian immigrants to Canada.
