Women in Canada: 50 Years of Change

report
Please check back for any updates/bi-weekly reminders.

Fifty years ago, on February 16, 1967, the historic Royal Commission on the Status of Women was launched. Using this landmark Royal Commission as a starting point, a study group on women in Canada will meet bi-weekly from February to April to consider women’s equality decade by decade, from 1967-2017.

The study group will ask: What was particularly relevant for women during each 10-year period? How has women’s equality advanced in the last 50 years? Which women were left out of consideration and remain underrepresented in decision-making today?

The group will launch Thursday February 16, 2017 from 12:00 noon to 1:00 pm. and will focus on the years 1967-1977. The sessions will be held at the Confederation Centre Public Library in Charlottetown. February is Black History Month and February 16 is midway through Family Violence Prevention Week. Lots to talk about!

Mark March 2, 16, and 30; and April 13 and 27 for future study group sessions. For more information, contact 902-368-4510 or info@peistatusofwomen.ca or visit https://peiacsw.wordpress.com.
