Eliminating Barriers to the Realization of Women’s Human Rights

Trade agreements such as CETA have eliminated formal barriers to trade such as non-tariffs, tariffs and quotas. However, women are still underrepresented in international trade jobs. And, women who own businesses face several barriers to international trade entry.

About Genero Y Comercio

Genero Y Comercio as an Organization

We focus on advocating for the spread and support for assessment of the differential impact of trade agreements on women. We also promote the formulation of policies that support social and gender equity when it comes to economic development.

We understand that trade and trade policy affect men and women differently. And some trade policies don’t put into account existing gender inequalities. Gender discrimination also gives birth to negatives associated with geographic location, socioeconomic status, class, race, sexual orientation, ethnicity, and disability.
