Abstract:  This history is a resume of the activities of one group of women who have been involved in the women's movement in St. John's since the spring of 1972. The resume is an account of what went into setting up the Newfoundland Status of Women Council (NSWC) and some of the results of their activities. They have been active in the abortion struggle, the access of women to jury duty, and encouraging women to enter political life. It includes an extensive account of the beginnings of NSWC, what their work and strategy have been, groups they have worked with, and groups which have formed as a result of NSWC. The last page lists the reports and information which are available from the Women's Centre in Newfoundland.
