ADVOCACY

Advocacy

CFUW encourages its members to use their expertise to bring about change. The more committee members we have, the more we can do!

Particular emphasis is placed on women’s issues such as violence against women, early learning and childcare, education, economic prosperity and the empowerment of women as leaders and decision-makers.

Recent areas of focus include inter-city public transportation, involvement with Graduate Women International, bottled water and single-use plastics, Indigenous issues, the gender pay gap, and election issues.
