Feminist In Chief Has No Women on Womens Issue Scrum

The Federal Standing Committee on Finance will hear from a variety of speakers about economic disparities, including gender inequality, today in Charlottetown.

The only problem? The committee doesn’t have any female members present.

Jenny Wright, executive director of the St. John’s Status of Women Council, posted a tweet Tuesday highlighting the irony of the fact that she was about to speak in front of an all-male government panel about income inequality for women.

The committee is meeting on Tuesday – Persons Day (external - login to view), which celebrates the 1929 court decision that legally defined women as persons under law. It’s also one day after an Oxfam report highlighted the income inequality women still experience in Canada and around the world.

Canada is no exception. Of the 500 occupations Statistics Canada tracks in its monthly labour reports, Oxfam says women earn less than men in 469 – even when education levels and work performed are similar. Another Oxfam report released in March of this year found that women earn 72 per cent of what men do in Canada, and Statistics Canada data (external - login to view) has the same finding. Women also perform more unpaid work than men, which affects their ability to participate in the paid workforce. And some groups of women are even further behind. Indigenous women actually experience a higher wage gap with higher education.

I'd love to see where oxfam got its numbers. I'm not saying that I don't believe them. I'm just saying that the they aren't very believable

A large segment of the workforce is impacting this data by the type of jobs many women hold, retail sales, admin position, cashier, customer service, etc.. these are low paying jobs. Albeit, woman in leadership role are still earning less for equal work and they are under represented in the senate. France, Denmark, Sweden, UK and Norway are much ahead of Canada in how these use their woman's knowledge and education by promoting them by merit. This might change in the future, since Canadian women comprise of over 52% of university graduates. They need to increase enrolment in STEM however.

No women present at the Federal Standing Committee on Finance is no surprise, just look at our aboriginal, their well being and community planning are usually decided with none of their leaders at the table (it might have changed this year). They are invited after-the-fact to be told ..... and that has worked really well, NOT!!
