Candice Solomon is a lawyer by training who graduated from Osgoode Hall Law School and was called to the Ontario bar in 1999. Candice practiced corporate finance, securities and M&A law in Toronto at a large Bay Street law firm for 10 years before moving in-house to the Royal Bank of Canada where she was Senior Counsel and part of the award-winning M&A Law Group. Following her time at Royal Bank of Canada, Candice was one of the first senior lawyer editors at Practical Law Canada, a Thomson Reuters company, where she wrote content in her areas of specialization - capital markets and securities law, as well as corporate and M&A law - before deciding to step away from the work-world to spend more time with her family. Since then, Candice has been an active volunteer and involved in a number of charities including a term on the board of directors of a Canadian charity dedicated to children. Candice brings a wealth of knowledge and advocacy to The Abraham Global Peace Initiative and is excited to be part of a charitable organization that promotes peace and tolerance, as well as the Canadian values of freedom and democracy.
"The alarming takeover of Afghanistan by the medieval and misogynistic Taliban represents a tragedy for the rights of women and girls in that beleaguered country. A harbinger of things to come, images of women are already being expunged from public spaces and the Secretary General of the United Nations has said that the rights of women and girls are being “ripped away” in Taliban controlled areas.
Women and girls who had aspired to a brighter future with opportunities for education and participation in civil society now live in dread of the spectre of gender Apartheid and perpetual subjugation. Horrifyingly, there have been media reports of girls as young as 12 being abducted as brides for Taliban fighters and we are seeing desperate women throwing themselves at the barricades, pleading for sanctuary from the bleak future that awaits them under the new regime.
The AGPI stands with the women and girls of Afghanistan and calls on governments, NGO’s and all people of conscience to urgently mobilize on their behalf".
