Conference by journalists Caroline Plante and Jocelyne Richer on the theme "women, politics and the media"

Wednesday, April 20, 2016

The Cercle had the pleasure of receiving political journalists Caroline Plante and Jocelyne Richer, who answered various questions (in French only) about media coverage of women in politics. The conference was very popular!


Ms. Gaudreault with guest journalists Caroline Plante, Bureau Chief at the National Assembly for The Montreal Gazette, and Jocelyne Richer, journalist for The Canadian Press.

Women parliamentarians and elected women of the Assembly of First Nations attended the conference on the theme "women, politics and the media".

 

Among the participants were five elected women of the Assembly of First Nations of Québec, who came to the National Assembly to take part in the discussions.


Elected women of the Assembly of First Nations Anne Archambault, Marjolaine Étienne, Brenda Michel, Julie Rousseau and Françoise Ruperthouse participated in the conference.

Ms. Gaudreault presented the Grand Chief of the Viger Maliseet First Nation, Anne Archambault, with the Solidarity Protocol between the women Members of the National Assembly and the Elected Women of the Assembly of First Nations of Quebec and Labrador, signed on February 18, 2015.

 

During the conference, Ms. Gaudreault also took the opportunity to unveil the official logo for the Cercle des femmes parlementaires and explain its meaning.


The arcs form a C, also reminiscent of a circle, representing gathering and meeting. The arcs cross to evoke the pooling of ideas and opinions among women parliamentarians as well as their different areas of activity.
