The St. John’s Status of Women Council (SJSOWC) opened in 1972, and was followed in 1973 by the St. John’s Women’s Centre, making it the oldest, member-owned women’s centre in Canada. In the ensuing five decades, we’ve been at the heart of substantive legislative and social change in St. John’s and across the province.
But our work is far from done. Today, we are passionate about feminism, wage pay equity, low-barrier housing, anti-violence work, sex worker rights and harm reduction. If these are passions you share, join us. We need your interest, your voice, your skills, and your passion, if we are to continue to make the world a better place for all of us.
