- Intimate Partner Violence in Canadian LGB Communities
Authors: Betty J. Barrett et al.
Abstract: After nearly three decades of scholarship, it is no longer contestable that intimate partner violence (IPV) is found within gay, lesbian, and bisexual (LGB) communities just as it is in heterosexual partnerships. However, much of the research has been devoted to comparing heterosexual to same-sex couples and we know much less about the specific experience of bisexual-identified people. In this research we aimed to address these gaps by providing a look at within-group variations of LGB-identified individuals and their experiences of IPV.

- Why Do Women Earn Less than Men
Authors: Carole Vincent
Abstract: Two of the most important socioeconomic changes over the last few decades are the massive influx of women into the workforce and the remarkable progress that they have made in educational attainment. In spite of these developments, women still earn less than men. Why is it the case'
Is it because women are overrepresented in professions that are at the lower end of the pay scale' Because they place a greater value on non-pecuniary aspects of a job' Because they have greater family responsibilities' Or yet again, because of gender stereotypes in the workplace'
The evidence resulting from an important body of Canadian research using microdata from several surveys conducted by Statistics Canada shed light on these questions and help us better understand the evolution and the persistence of the gender wage gap in Canada.
