Kate McInturff

Policy Analyst

Early this year, The Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives mourned the loss of feminist researcher and scholar Kate McInturff after a three-year battle with cancer. Known by staff, board and partners as a feminist trailblazer in public policy and gender-based research, McInturff’s annual report, “The Best and Worst Places to be a Woman in Canada,” has received broad media coverage in national and local news for four years running, with hundreds of media stories covering the report’s ranking of gender equality across Canada’s largest cities. Beyond this report, McInturff maintained a popular blog called Behind the Numbers, for which she delivered progressive commentary on issues that affect Canadians, including inequality, the economy, climate change, and public services. To honour McInturff’s legacy and carry on the important work of fighting gender-based inequalities, the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives established a fellowship in her name as part of their Making Women Count initiative. The Centre is committed to promoting the solutions that will ultimately realize social and economic justice.
