The 70s and 80s saw a flurry of activity in the Women’s Movement in Newfoundland and Labrador. Status of Women Councils wrote briefs to the government on issues such as education and women in public life. Women wrote Letters to the Editor and often the public responded. Feminist organizations produced newsletters and magazines. The media covered peace walks, public marches, and other events. These materials not only provide us with important facts, they often also reveal the flavour of the times.
