Grace Hollett, National CFUW President, joined the Table Hoppers group on Wednesday, Oct 17 at Portobella in Picton. After Grace explained that she had never been to ‘The County’, Club President Laura Hare made a scenic detour to Lake on the Mountain before driving Grace to her son’s home near Plainfield.
CFUW is writing to introduce clubs to a National Initiative of a Status of Women Subcommittee. The initiative is a research project titled, “Preventing and Responding to Violence Against Womenand Girls: Sexual Assault Policies in Post-Secondary Institutions in Canada”. The purpose of the project is to determine whether post-secondary institutions have sexual assault policies and, if so, how do the policies work in practice. We are inviting individual members to participate in the project as volunteers by completing a questionnaire. This requires doing internet research towards finding sexual assault policies at post-secondary institutions, examining the policies, and completing a questionnaire about the policies.
The local Resolutions Meeting will be held on Thursday, January 29th at the home of Penny Hendricks. Please contact her if you wish to attend.
