She worked to develop the first government policy on the status of women publishing numerous studies, which reviewed the social and economic situation of women in Quebec. During her tenure, the Council founded La Gazette des femmes (The Women’s Gazette) which became both an educational paper and a feminist vehicle, giving women a voice in issues which effected their lives. In 1983, Bonenfant launched another anti-sexism program called Pareille, pas pareils, aimed at educational equality. That same year, the Council held the first forum in Canada on women and the economy, entitled Les femmes: une force économique insoupçonnée, in Montreal which had around 1,000 attendees. She participated in the hearings of Bill 89, which aimed at establishing reform of the Family Law and Civil Code, and was instrumental in creating the law for pay equity, which finally passed in 1996.
