It’s all about the work that goes unnoticed

By Taylor McClure, Special to The Record

The Association féminine d’éducation et d’action sociale, a local organization that has been defending the interests of women and the equality between women and men in Quebec and Canada at all levels of government since 1966, recently put out a call to all provincial governments that they mark the first Tuesday of April as National Day of Invisible Work. According to the press release sent out by AFEAS, invisible work is defined as:

-The unpaid work done out of love and sense of duty.
-The work of a parent that puts their professional life on hold to raise their child and to provide them with a healthy environment.
-The work of a parent who has a child with a disability and is constantly facing waitlists for the services that they need for that child.
