The Liberal government is spending more money on women’s rights abroad – an effort to showcase Prime Minister Justin Trudeau‘s bona fides on gender equality in a country where access to abortion seems to be slipping away.

Trudeau was expected to reaffirm his government’s commitment to supporting reproductive freedom later Thursday at a star-studded progressive summit in the heart of Hell’s Kitchen on the shores of the Hudson River.
