Thank you very much.
The testimony from both of you was very interesting. I hope I have time to speak to both witnesses, Ms. Walker and Ms. Hawranik.
Ms. Hawranik, your group seems very helpful. For example, you provide inclusion and gender lens training.
I will give you some examples of inappropriate measures introduced during the pandemic.
According to a female doctor I spoke to recently who runs a health clinic, many women in her community who work in jobs more often occupied by women, such as hairstyling or personal support in health care facilities, do not yet qualify for the emergency business account measure. These are often small businesses that do not need a business account and use a personal account. They are therefore not eligible for the $40,000 loan. Earlier, we also talked about the rent payment loan.
These measures may not be tailored to women. What do you think?
Do you have any other quick clear examples of gender mainstreaming in policy measures in these times of crisis?
