Earlier this week, Academy Award winner Patricia Arquette ruffled a lot of feathers when she called for women's income equality in her globally televised acceptance speech. The call was controversial - but it reminded the TV-watching public that there is still a lot of work to do. Tax law and tax policy is part of that work.
From the impact of global tax havens on developing companies, to multinationals shifting resource profits, to income splitting - women all over the world pay the price of bad tax policy decisions. Changing that situation is the theme of a Queen's University gathering scheduled for March 6-7 in Kingston. Registration is still open to the public.
You can find the whole program here.
Canadians for Tax Fairness is pleased to help sponsor this event. Executive Director Dennis Howlett will be participating in the concluding panel on March 7.
