Pro­vin­cial Ad­vi­sory Coun­cil Sta­tus of Women Strate­gic Is­sues

The Labradorian - - Editorial -

The Ad­vi­sory Coun­cil’s cur­rent fo­cus ar­eas, as spec­i­fied in its 2017-2020 busi­ness plan, are re­lated to the eco­nomic and so­cial se­cu­rity of women. Poverty and eco­nomic in­sta­bil­ity are sys­temic bar­ri­ers for many women through­out the prov­ince and ef­forts to ad­dress these is­sues are key com­po­nents in ad­vanc­ing the sta­tus of women. So­cial se­cu­rity is the cor­ner­stone to liv­ing in pos­i­tive and safe com­mu­ni­ties. Jus­tice ser­vices, hous­ing, safety, lead­er­ship at all lev­els, healthy re­la­tion­ships, youth de­vel­op­ment, so­cial me­dia, health­care, cul­tural and en­vi­ron­men­tal sus­tain­abil­ity are all crit­i­cal so­cial se­cu­rity el­e­ments that help re­duce vi­o­lence and con­trib­ute to women’s equal­ity.
