Thank you so much for being here with us, and thank you for our very feminist budget.
In my opinion, this is a very feminist budget and I thank you once again for that.
I'm going to ask my questions both in English and in French, and will be sharing my time with one of my colleagues.
We've touched on unpaid work and know that it is definitely one of the big contributors to the gender wage gap. However, another thing that contributes greatly to this gap is the fact that women and men do different types of work. Sometimes women don't have the same access to the same jobs, not necessarily because opportunity is lacking, but because of the cultures in these different work environments.
I'd like to know what our government is doing to make higher paying jobs more accessible to women in order to help shrink the gender wage gap.
