(Our next general meeting is on Monday, February 26, 2024, starting at 10:30 am, at the Schubert Centre.
For more information go to our Events/Activities page.)
Take this day to do at least one thing to recognize and celebrate women’s and girls’ achievements in the many walks of life. By doing so, you will help raise awareness of the progress made towards achieving gender equality. While you will also see that there is still work to do, women’s incredible achievements to date can fill us with pride and motivate us to continue our efforts. And check out Bev’s article on this topic on our Activism and Advocacy page.
The Canadian Federation of University Women (CFUW) Vernon is the local chapter of CFUW, a federal organization that welcomes ALL women who support its purposes, mission, and values. Since its founding in 1919, CFUW has been working to improve the status of women and to promote human rights, public education, social justice, and peace. CFUW is a non-partisan, voluntary, self-funded organization with over 90 Clubs, of which Vernon is one, located in every province across Canada. 2019 was CFUW’s 100th Anniversary!
