Publication updated March 20, 2018.

On March 8, 2018, the Manitoba Women’s Advisory Council launched the publication “The Status of Women in Manitoba.” The publication highlights Manitoba’s progress in women’s equality in four critical areas: education, employment, health and violence against women. It provides the public with accurate information on how women are faring in these critical areas and also shows where opportunities remain for advancing positive change in the future.

The Council hopes the publication will foster opportunities for discussion, the sharing of key information and raising awareness, while also helping to guide all sectors of society to develop policies and programs that improve the status of women in our province.
