Final Study Group Next Week:  

Thursday, April 27, 2017
12:00 noon to 1:00pm
Discussion of the years 2007-2017
and Closing Ceremony

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, the Advisory Council on the Status of Women and the Aboriginal Women’s Association will host a study group on women in Canada. The group will meet bi-weekly in March and 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 March 2, from 12:00 noon to 1:00 pm. The first session will focus on the years 1967-1977. The study group will be held at the Confederation Centre PublicLibrary in Charlottetown. Kendi Tarichia will bring the perspective of Black Islanders to the first study group discussion.


Mark the dates March 16, and 30; and April 13 and 27 for future study groups in the series. Hosted by Aboriginal Women’s Association of PEI, PEI Advisory Council on the Status of Women and the PEI Public Library Service.For more information, contact 902-368-4510 or info@peistatusofwomen.ca or visit https://peiacsw.wordpress.com
