Purpose of the Committee
Regional Women’s Committees (RWCs) serve an important purpose in PSAC, including increasing the participation of women activists and leaders. RWCs provide “safer spaces” for PSAC women to identify, strategize and work on issues of particular concern in a local or region. RWCs also encourage the development of strong networks of women that cross racial, sexual, gender, ability and class lines.
Who can join?
Membership in the Committee is open to all members in the specified area who identify as women. A local can have one or more members participate on the Committee, however only one of those may be a voting member.
