11.5 m of textual records. -- 1 audio cassette
The Calgary Status of Women Action Committee (CSWAC) was established in 1974 after a survey conducted by concerned individuals in the Local Council of Women, the Status of Women Committee, and the Secretary of State Department indicated the need for a permanent coordinating office in Calgary to alleviate fragmentation of the activities of local women's groups. With a general aim of educating the general public with respect to the status of women, CSWAC has focused attention on many specific issues of concern to women of Calgary and Alberta such as day care, maternity leave, matrimonial property, media advocacy and equal pay for work of equal value. These concerns have been expressed through the preparation of papers and reports, and the sponsoring of educational conferences, workshops, public meetings and speakers. CSWAC also publishes and funds the monthly Calgary Women's Newspaper.
