The term "girlboss," despite its connotation, doesn't only refer to a certain brand of female entrepreneurs. By juggling the roles of mother, Minister of Public Security and Deputy Premier, Geneviève Guilbault's Instagram shows that she is indeed a girlboss — a major one, in fact.
Elected to the National Assembly in 2017 and re-elected in 2018, the 37-year-old works for the Coalition Avenir Québec (CAQ).
Having recently given birth to her second child, the MNA for Louis-Hébert wears many hats, not only in her role as a politician, but also being the minister responsible for the Capitale-Nationale region.
Guilbault's Instagram page often shows her in professional, social and personal activities that prove she is a strong and capable woman.
As Minister of Public Security, Guilbault was keen to review the 20-year-old Police Act.
Two weeks before giving birth, she published a green paper that addresses the reality of policing to help adjust it to meet the needs of today's world.
Already the mother of a little girl who's almost three years old, Guilbault gave birth to a boy a few months ago.
Balancing work and family, she has made a gradual return to public office, presenting her brand-new child to the Premier, François Legault, and his wife, Isabelle Brais.
At the forefront of the fight against COVID-19, the minister responsible for the Capitale-Nationale region has succeeded in what few had done before her.
She sat down with the mayors of Levis and Quebec City to back-up her words about the seriousness of the situation there this fall.
Having completed a bachelor's and a master's degree in communications, Guilbault specializes in public relations.
To this day, she continues to give conferences on topics such as business and economics.
On International Women's Day, the CAQ minister did not hesitate to speak out when she appeared on the Salut Bonjour weekend show last March.
Guilbault regularly chooses to show her support for various causes. She and her team visited a GLOBULE centre to donate blood. In another picture, she is seen donating her maternity clothes to the Friperie St-Augustin.
The Deputy Premier was willing to play along with the host's games on talk show La semaine des 4 Julie. She described the host as "a woman of head and heart."
In a different shot, Geneviève Guilbault poses next to another very popular woman, Michelle Obama. She captioned it with the hashtags "pride," "happiness" and "privilege."
Girlbosses of the world unite!
