The Equality of Women and MenWhich is more than the old version ever had to say on the topic.
In Canada, men and women are equal under the law. Canada's openness and generousity do not extend to barbaric cultural practices that tolerate spousal abuse, "honour killings," female genital mutilation or other gender-based violence. Those guilty of these crimes are severely punished under Canada's criminal laws.
Now if only they could include equal pay (among a plethora of other gender inequalities that need addressing in this country) to that list.
