Regional Womens Committees

PSAC Regional Women's Committees (RWCs) provide an opportunity for PSAC women to organize in their regions and work together collectively. They give recognition and credibility to women's rights as an important concern of the union.  Committees aim to inform and educate women on the political, social, economic, and workplace issues that affect them.  RWCs also speak for women with a strong, common voice and advocate policies that promote women's rights.  They also mobilize women to participate in the union and to take action on the issues and empower women with the knowledge, skills and confidence they need to exercise effective leadership.
