REAL Women is engaging in a letter campaign to the federal government to have the Status of Women Canada (SWC) disbanded. Because of this, letters to the government from feminist groups supporting SWC are urgently needed. (If you are unfamiliar with REAL Women, you can see their website at: realwomenca.com)

Below is a copy of an article from the REAL Women website that provides some ideas for where they are going with the new government. We’ve highlighted one section that you should look at if you don’t have time, or the stomach to read the whole sorry thing.

Also below, appears a copy of a National Post column that is no doubt the start of the right wing press to support their agenda.

This would be a good time to write your MP, Stephen Harper, and to the Minister Responsible for the Status of Women Canada in support of increased core funding for women’s equality-seeking groups.

Let’s not let them do to women in the whole country what they’ve done to us
in Ontario!
