Gender Equality Guide
Réalisatrices Équitables sits on the consulting committee set up by the Ministère de la Justice et du Secrétariat à la condition féminine on the recasting of the upcoming gender equality guide. This guide serves as a code of conduct for the Québec government or for the courts when they rule on equity issues. As an example, for the past several years, Québec has used this guide to state its position on pay equity. At RÉ, we are working to have employment equity apply to government grants, which constitute a large part of Québec cultural workers’ earnings. We have already presented a brief to the Ministère de la Justice and to the Secrétariat à la condition féminine, titled: La presénce et la représentation des femmes dans les médias.
