Women, Two Spirit, trans and non binary people across the spectrum have been at the forefront of what it means to be a caregiver. Whether society defines it as nurture or instinct, one thing’s for certain, over half of the women in our economy work in the 5 C’s: caring, catering, clerical work, cashiering and cleaning. Andrea Gunraj is the Vice President of Public Engagement at the Canadian Women’s Foundation and she spoke about why we need to value care work in order to protect women and gender diverse people. Gunraj spoke at Concordia University presents “The Walrus Talks: What’s Next” in May 2022.
