Parliament Video: Jenny in the House: Women and homelessness

On April 11, 2017, Jenny rose to speak about women and homelessness:

Jenny Kwan (NDP) Vancouver East, BC

"Mr. Speaker, on the question of women's rights and women's equality, my colleague talked about a whole range of different issues. However, tied into that is the housing issue. There is a crisis with respect to homelessness. I note that in budget 2017-18, for this year there is a big fat zero with respect to that.

Would the member have some comments around women and the issue of homelessness, or precarious housing conditions? That, too, is tied into the whole issue of women's equality, especially their access to equal pay."
