Status of Women Committee

CISSS de la Montérégie-Centre

I have worked in the health field at CISSS de la Montérégie-Centre since 2009. When I saw the notice of election for the Status of Women Committee, I immediately felt challenged by this. Having experienced domestic violence, I know how important it is to have support. With my drive, commitment and perseverance, I want to advance the feminist cause.

Through my experience and personal journey, I want to share the knowledge I have acquired with you. And above all, to put them at your disposal in representing you.

Issues such as Professional, personal and political life balance, limited number of female models in politics, unfair financial compensation, violence against women are all issues that I want to defend with you. Women make up half the population and they help Québec society progress, as workers, mothers and taxpayers.

Together, as healthcare professionals who are mostly women, let’s improve our conditions.
