ABSTRACT
The article presents an argument against focusing only on women's rights in Canada. It is the author's opinion that Canada is obligated to help improve the status of women on an international scale. Women's issues in Canada are addressed including the needs of Aboriginal women, single mothers, and disabled women. Violence against women in Africa, Asia, and Muslim societies is discussed. The connection between global issues such as the AIDS and HIV pandemic and the status of women is explored.
