The Women's Network Project of Prince Edward Island is developing a new publication to build community among the province's women.
Abstract: The Women's Network Project of Prince Edward Island is developing a new publication to build community among the province's women. Newsmag is intended:
1) to provide Island women with information on the issues and activities of local women's organizations;
2) to serve as a public forum to focus on women's interests and concerns; and
3) to provide women with an opportunity to learn more about developments locally and nationally that affect their well-being and/or that of their families.
Newsmag is being developed under the direction of an ad hoc committee whose eight members represent a variety of women's organizations. In order to determine in advance the degree of support for such a publication, the group first undertook an extensive survey of their constituents, using questionnaires, follow-up interviews and public meetings. The first issue is slated for publication March 8, International Women's Day.
