Women in Municipal Politics Guide

"Women Care for Communities" Municipal Election Guide 2014The PEI Advisory Council on the Status of Women is releasing “Women Care for Communities,” a guide to upcoming municipal elections.

On November 3, municipal elections are happening. Women have a lot to contribute, whether they are running for elected office or turning out to vote and have their say.

Our new municipal election guide highlights the many ways local governments affect women’s lives. In areas including safety, environment, housing, transportation, recreation, and culture, small communities can make improvements. Including women and other under-represented groups is good for community life.

The guide also highlights the goal of increasing representation of women in government. Municipalities are great places to shape women leaders.

Available online at this link: Women Care for Communities: Municipal Election Guide 2014.

************

On pourra bientôt consulter L’engagement féminin au sein des collectivités, un guide des élections municipales 2014 mis au point par le Conseil consultatif sur la situation de la femme de l’Î.-P.-É.http://www.gov.pe.ca/photos/original/acsw_municip14.pdf

Nous voulons que les femmes prennent une part active aux élections municipales le 3 novembre. Les femmes ont beaucoup à offrir, que ce soit en se présentant comme candidates ou en votant pour faire valoir leurs opinions.

Notre nouveau guide des élections municipales fait état des nombreuses répercussions que les administrations municipales peuvent avoir sur la vie des femmes. Les petites collectivités peuvent apporter des améliorations en matière de sécurité, d’environnement, de logement, de transport, de loisirs et de culture. L’inclusion des femmes et d’autres groupes sous-représentés ne fait qu’enrichir la vie communautaire.

Le guide souligne également l’importance d’accroître la représentation des femmes au sein des gouvernements. Les municipalités sont des endroits idéaux où encourager les femmes à devenir de véritables leaders.

L’engagement féminin au sein des collectivités : Guide des élections municipales 2014 est disponible en ligne

National Coalition of Advisory Councils Meets in Charlottetown

national-coalition-of-adv-councils-2014

Some members of the National Coalition of Provincial and Territorial Advisory Councils on the Status of Women in Charlottetown.

At the end of September, we hosted representatives of Advisory Councils on the Status of Women from across Canada here in Charlottetown for our annual National Coalition meeting. The National Coalition of Provincial and Territorial Advisory Councils on the Status of Women shares information about the activities, issues, and best practices of each member organization and plans actions to address national issues that affect the status of Canadian women.

Most of the topics for discussion at the National Coalition table are ongoing issues of concern, including the need for national strategies to prevent violence against women and girls; the particular need for an inquiry into missing and murdered Indigenous women; changes to Employment Insurance benefits, including maternity and parental benefits; unaddressed instances of sexism by professionals such as judges or doctors; unequal access to basic health services, especially abortion care; effective ways to support women in government and leadership at all levels; inclusive economic development that benefits women equally with men; and the need for supports and services for sex trade workers.

The National Coalition will carry these issues forward with research-based letters to policy-makers and to the general public, under the leadership of Coalition chair Linda Ross of the Provincial Advisory Council on the Status of Women in Newfoundland and Labrador.

A highlight this year was the opportunity to meet the co-chairs of the new Voices of New Brunswick Women Consensus-Building Forum, established after the abolition of their Advisory Council. We hope that through this new forum, New Brunswick will take advantage of the many benefits of an Advisory Council on the Status of Women to provide a bridge between community and government voices on women’s equality issues.

The majority of the members of the National Coalition of Advisory Councils stayed in PEI to take part in the Bold Vision conference in Brudenell. We were proud to provide the best hospitality that PEI has to offer. Members of the PEI Advisory Council on the Status of Women had an opportunity to meet counterparts from across the country in a reception hosted by Hon. Valerie Docherty, PEI’s Minister Responsible for the Status of Women.

Next year’s meeting is planned for St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador.
