Other Women's Organizations

In addition to the Status of Women Councils and the Provincial Advisory Council on the Status of Women, several other women’s organizations made contributions to the women’s movement in Newfoundland and Labrador in the 70s and 80s. For instance, the Women’s Institutes and the St. John’s Club of the Canadian Federation of University Women (CFUW) shared many of the same goals as the women’s organizations more formally linked to the Women’s Movement. On occasion, they also worked together on projects. For instance, in 1975 the CFUW and Women’s Institutes held a joint conference in Gander called “Women: Creative Leadership”. The Women’s Institutes and the Newfoundland Status of Women Council (later known as the St. John’s Status of Women Council) also worked together on a Women’s Health Education Project in the early 80s.
