This is the newsletter for the British Columbia Federation of Women, which was founded in 1974 to act as an umbrella organization providing a network of support for women’s groups in the province. Its purpose was to organize province-wide action on women’s issues, including health, child care, education, and employment.
The first issue of the newsletter states that its functions are:
“1) printing news of BCFW activities; 2) providing a means of communication between interest groups; 3) printing letters from readers; 4) informing BCFW members on the activities of the Standing Committee; 5) providing reports on the work of member organizations and individual members; 6) circulating news of the women’s movement in general, in Canada and world-wide; 7) contributing to our knowledge of the history of the women’s movement in B.C.”
