GOVERNMENT TO ATTEND NAC LOBBY DAY
Announcing the Government’s participation, Dr. Fry said, "NAC continues to bring forward to the public and the government many of the most pressing issues faced by women today. The Lobby Day provides the opportunity for NAC to present its views directly to the government and at the same time provides us with the opportunity to listen and respond."

The questions focus on a number of issues including, male violence against women, health policy, post secondary education for women, women and work, pension policy, the rights of women with disabilities, aboriginal women’s involvement in reviewing the constitution and immigration issues
