A Blog gives you current information and items of inerest. The National Council of Women of Canada (NCWC) has done two blogs on the meetings of the Commission on the Status of Women, 2010, and 2011. We are continuing now with a blog, on a range of topics of interst to members and the public. The NCWC has a very complete web site where you can learn more about the history and members of Council.

A blog (a blend of the term web log) is a type of or part of a website. Blogs are usually maintained by an individual with regular entries of commentary, descriptions of events, or other material such as graphics or video. Entries are commonly displayed in reverse-chronological order.

Most blogs (including this one) are interactive, allowing visitors to leave comments and even message each other via widgets on the blogs and it is this interactivity that distinguishes them from other static websites

Many blogs provide commentary or news on a particular subject. A typical blog combines text, images, and links to other blogs, web pates, and other media related to its topic. The ability of readers to leave comments in an interactive format is an important part of many blogs.

As of 16 February 2011 (2011 -02-16), there were over 156 million public blogs in existence.

National Council of Women of Canada Urges Women to Vote May 2nd

Media Release

Thursday April 28th, 2011

For Immediate Release: National Council of Women of Canada Urges Women to Vote May 2nd

It has never been more important than right now for women in Canada to vote and make their voices heard according to Mary Scott, President of the National Council of Women of Canada.  The Council represents over 500,000 women and more than 40 organizations across the country.    With 21 percent of women undecided as reported by a Nik Nanos poll, women’s votes matter in deciding this election. 

Women’s votes are crucial if they are to show their impatience with the lack of a clear plan for poverty reduction;  a system of accessible, affordable and quality early childhood education and child care; affordable housing; equal pay for work of equal value; funding to support advocacy; defense of  the long gun registry; neglect of the environment; elimination of violence against women and otherwise encourage factors  that  promote the equal participation of all women in Canadian society.  Disregard for issues that matter to women must be stopped.

 It’s time to follow in the footsteps of women like the Famous Five and those who insisted that women be included in the Constitution and let everyone know we will not be silenced says Scott.

Women must think for themselves and ensure that they make the best use of their vote.  Every vote matters.  There’s no time like the present to give those in power a strong message. Women count. 

Get out to vote and organize your friends and family to join you.
