Income-splitting, along with the government’s zero dollar spending on child care, and detaxation is an attack on women’s equality in Canada. Kathleen Lahey made that argument at the inaugural Women’s Forum in Ottawa, Ontario in 2012.
Lahey is a specialist in feminist legal studies, teaching law and sexuality, and taxation and tax policy at Queen’s University.

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.
