The Task force on Older Women is sponsored by the B.C. NDP and organized through the Woman's Rights Committee of the Party. It was instituted through a resolution at the 1979 Convention of the B.C. NDP and is designed to delineate the problems of older women (40 and over) and to develop policy and program recommendations for the Party. This project will help to correct the present policy imbalance created through a focus on issues pertinent to younger women. The project covers research into published material, use of a questionnaire, public hearings in regional centers, a 10 minute slide sound presentation, and the development of applicable policy proposals for the 1981 convention. Published materials so far include the Interim Report of the Task Force on Older Women, the questionnaire, and articles in the Democrat and Priorities.
