Women occupy SWC office in St. John's reports: Following a morning celebration and send off for the program officer at the Status of Women Canada St. John's Office - slated for closure next month - women are calling for action. Representatives from equality-seeking organizations from across the province are sitting in the SWC office developing a list of demands to the Federal Government.

"We came here this morning to thank Paula Simon for her 25 years of hard work and support," said Joyce Hancock, with the Feminist Coalition of Newfoundland and Labrador. "After hearing women share their success stories that show deeply SWC has impacted our communities, women who came here from throughout the province decided that we are not satisfied to merely say goodbye."
