It's interesting that one of the questions removed from the long-form census was about performance of unpaid work, i.e. childcare, care of the elderly, etc. The reasoning is obvious: the majority of unpaid work is performed by women, and that's a direct commentary on equity within Canadian society.

If we don't have any idea how much unpaid work is being performed any more, then women don't have data with which to make their case for greater economic fairness.
