Status of Women News was published about four times a year by the National Action Committee on the Status of Women.  The magazine started publication in the 1970’s, had to close in 1980, and was then rebuilt in the 1980’s.  The magazine was distributed to members and sold on newsstands.  It covered a wide range of topics and interest to the women’s movement from all across Canada.  As noted in an Editorial Report in 1983, NAC, through Status of Women News, published articles on grassroots groups from across the country- the Elizabeth Fry, the Yukon Status of Women, domestic workers organizations. It had a story on women’s studies in Newfoundland and on benefits to welfare mothers in B.C. Status wrote on rural women, women and militarism, women in prison and Women’s Press. It talked about equality through language, mathaphobia and pensions for homemakers. There were columns on prostitution, family law and maternity leave. Status publicized the research and lobbying work done by NAC committees in the form of briefs: the Impact of New Technology on Women and Employment; Prostitution, Soliciting (presented to the Standing Committee on Justice and Legal Affairs) and the Media Watch presentation to the CRTC on Pay TV. It received research papers from women professors at MacMaster, U.B.C. and Dalhousie and submissions from over 30 writers and artists from across Canada. Status also published the work of young, progressive, feminist artists and graphic designers.
