Abstract: The Newfoundland Status of Women Council seeks equal opportunity for women in the labor fore, market place, and legal system. To achieve this stated goal, the Council is involved in many activities, such as the publication of a Newsletter. This edition of their newsletter describes in detail the activities of the Council and its committees for 1978, 1979.
The newsletter carries reports on the work of such committees as Mother's Group, Women and the Law, and the Consciousness Raising Group. Other activities include bringing information to Newfoundland women through the use of radio and T.V.; assessing the need for a transition house in St. John's; sponsoring workshops for women, such as one on Feminist Counseling and one on Leadership. The Council also worked on a summer project in 1979 called "Women, Oil, and Industrial Development." The Newsletter points out that many discussions on such things as birth control, sexuality and the role of the women in the family are also part of the program of the Status of Women Council.
