Toward a policy that represents and unites us

The last Women’s Network brought together 130 union reps around the theme “Toward a policy that represents and unites us.” It was held in Nicolet on February 21 and 22 and created the perfect setting for inspiring discussions and debate. One of the topics discussed was the mental load, which is one obstacle preventing women from taking on roles of power. Read the comic by French comic artist Emma, which explains what the mental load is.
