Abstract: The Women's Concerns Newsletter is one way for Canadian women in the church to be in touch with one another. Through it, women can inform one another of issues that concern them, they have the opportunity to reflect on their struggles and their experiences.
A report on the Women's Rights and Mission Conference - 1979 looks at how women are misused in work force, and exploited by the big city, which often forces women into prostitution. A reflection after a worship service looks at the use of male imagery in religion. The Guest Editorial looks closely at the cutbacks in Medicare, and how they are going to affect women. The widowed and single women are particularly vulnerable to the lack of health care if medicare disintegrates. The author suggests that because women will be affected more quickly, and with greater force than men, they must support medicare.
