Provincial government establishing independent forum to advance equality for women, girls; Le gouvernement provincial met sur pied un forum indépendant visant à promouvoir l’égalité des femmes et des filles

31 May 2013

FREDERICTON (GNB) – The provincial government is establishing an independent forum to advance equality and improve the lives of women and girls.

Justice Minister and Attorney General Marie-Claude Blais, who is also minister responsible for women’s equality, announced the creation of the Voices of New Brunswick Women Consensus-Building Forum while tabling the 2013-14 main estimates of the Women’s Equality Branch. The forum is the result of the Women’s Summit in 2011 and meetings held during the last year between her and the Voices of New Brunswick Women Working Group.

“We have worked hard during the last year on this forum,” said Blais. “We have listened to the women of this province, and we are proud to provide them with this independent forum to ensure their voices continue to be heard. I thank the members of the working group as well as my colleagues and the staff of the branch for their hard work and support that enabled us to move this project forward. I am looking forward to working with the branch and the forum in their different but complementary roles toward a future where we are all equal.”

The forum will provide advice to the provincial government on matters of interest to women while bringing issues to public attention. Membership will consist of representatives of women’s groups and/or organizations mandated to work on matters of interest to women. It is anticipated that the forum will be operational by this fall following the joint development of a relationship protocol that will ensure the independence of the forum is realized while ensuring a collaborative working relationship with the provincial government.

The budget for the Women’s Equality Branch in 2013-14 is $3,074,000. Funding will continue to be provided for many programs and services, including:

● domestic violence outreach services;
● the concurrent group program for children exposed to violence, and their mothers;
● second-stage housing;
● the Provincial Sexual Assault Strategy;
● the Strategic Framework to End Violence against Wabanaki Women in New Brunswick;
● gender equality scholarships; and
● the cybersafe girl initiative.

“The 2013-14 budget will continue to fund the many programs and services that provide much-needed services to women and children in New Brunswick,” said Blais. “The provincial government is committed to building a secure, economically viable and strong New Brunswick in which women may live and raise their children.”

Voices of Women Working Group report

31 mai 2013

FREDERICTON (GNB) – Le gouvernement provincial met sur pied un forum indépendant dont le mandat sera de promouvoir l’égalité des femmes et des filles et d’améliorer leur vie.

La ministre de la Justice et procureure générale, Marie-Claude Blais, qui est également ministre responsable de l’Égalité des femmes, a annoncé, aujourd’hui, la création du forum de concertation Les voix des femmes du Nouveau-Brunswick lorsqu’elle a déposé le budget principal 2013-2014 de la Direction de l’égalité des femmes. Le forum est le fruit du Sommet des femmes qui a eu lieu en 2011 et des réunions que la ministre a tenues au cours de la dernière année avec le Groupe de travail sur les voix des femmes du Nouveau-Brunswick.

« Nous travaillons fort depuis un an afin de mettre ce forum sur pied, a déclaré Mme Blais. Nous avons écouté les femmes de la province, et nous sommes fiers de leur offrir ce forum indépendant pour s’assurer qu’elles continuent de se faire entendre. Je remercie les membres du groupe de travail, ainsi que mes collègues et les membres du personnel de la direction pour leur travail acharné et leur appui qui nous ont permis de mener à bien cette initiative. J’ai hâte de travailler avec le personnel de la direction et les membres du forum dans leurs rôles distincts mais complémentaires en vue de bâtir un avenir où nous serons tous égaux. »

Le forum conseillera le gouvernement provincial sur des questions qui intéressent les femmes et il sensibilisera le grand public à certains enjeux. Le forum sera composé de représentants de groupes de femmes et d’organisations qui ont le mandat de s’occuper de questions d’intérêt pour les femmes. Il est prévu que le forum commencera ses activités cet automne après l’élaboration conjointe d’un protocole de relation pour assurer l’indépendance du forum et le maintien d’une relation de collaboration avec le gouvernement provincial.

Le budget de la Direction de l’égalité des femmes s’élève à 3 074 000 $ pour 2013-2014. La direction continuera d’accorder des fonds pour la prestation de divers programmes et services, y compris :

● les services d’approche en matière de violence familiale;
● le programme simultané en groupes pour les enfants exposés aux mauvais traitements et leurs mères;
● l’hébergement à long terme;
● la Stratégie provinciale en matière d’agression sexuelle;
● le Cadre stratégique pour mettre fin à la violence faite aux femmes abénaquises au Nouveau-Brunswick;
● les Bourses égalité femme-homme; et
● l’initiative Les filles et la cybersécurité.

« Le budget 2013-2014 continuera de financer les nombreux programmes et services essentiels à l’intention des femmes et des enfants du Nouveau-Brunswick, a affirmé Mme Blais. Le gouvernement provincial est déterminé à bâtir un Nouveau-Brunswick sûr, économiquement viable et solide où les femmes peuvent habiter et élever leurs enfants. »

Column: Independent voice needed to achieve women’s equality

by Jody Dallaire, from the Nov. 3rd Times & Transcript

http://timestranscript.canadaeast.com/opinion/article/1453093

Recently, the New Brunswick government announced that some women were being invited to the first women’s summit in provincial history. The summit is happening this week. Participants will discuss how women can have a voice in government.

Let me tell you what’s wrong with that statement. Then I’ll tell you what should happen.

You should first know that I sincerely hope the event goes sublimely well, that women express themselves openly, that the government representatives are open-minded and that great solutions are found and put into action.

First, why is this called the first women’s summit? There have been other women’s summits in New Brunswick, organized by the women’s community. Even if government did not attend, or does not remember them, they happened. This faux pas – calling it the first women’s summit – is an illustration of part of women’s – and the government’s – problem.

But also we must ask about the coming meeting:

Why “by-invitation”? Why so little notice? Why was it organized without input from citizens and women’s groups? There are actually two events, both at the Fredericton Inn: one happening tomorrow for groups and one on Saturday for individual women.

And since when is a quickly organized meeting called a “summit”? Where are the planning meetings, the discussion paper on the problem to be solved and the options?

While participants are there, I hope that they remind the government of a few things:

Like the community told the government seven months ago when it announced that it would be cutting all public funds allocated to the Advisory Council on the Status of Women, women are not asking for a “voice in government,” but rather for an “independent” voice, one that documents and informs everyone about women’s concerns. The independent voice can bring women’s equality concerns to the attention of the government and to the general public. Then women’s voices in government and society at large can work to achieve greater women’s equality. As it stands now, half of the equation is missing.

In the last year, the government has had many opportunities to advance gender equality. It could have appointed a fair number of women on boards and commissions. It could have used data that is broken down by sex when making decisions and could have published that data. It could have mandated the economic and social bodies that it created not to make gender inequality worse. It could have recognized that there are women’s issues other than providing services to victims of violence. It could have even expressed some concern about the lack of an independent voice on gender equality.

We must understand why the Advisory Council was abolished and what has changed since then.

New Brunswick women fought long and hard in the 1970s to obtain the arm’s length Advisory Council which the provincial government abolished last March, with a few days notice. As the Chairperson of the Advisory Council at the time said before closing the office: “It looks like we women are back on our own to bring about the full citizenship and participation of women in New Brunswick society. One generation of New Brunswick women, at least, had a publicly funded ally, in the Advisory Council on the Status of Women, in creating this fairer world.”

Given the public reaction to its abolition, the Council was respected and valued.

Currently, the government subsidizes no one to do what the Council did, especially to document and make known what women are concerned about and whether what the government is doing is helping or hurting.

Furthermore, there are no elected women in the opposition Liberals and women on the government side have said they think there is no problem.

Last spring, during the debate on the government’s decision to abolish the Advisory Council, one female MLA congratulated her government for having abolished the Advisory Council by saying that it was “a big change, but it is a good change. It signals the end of women’s issues being at arm’s length of the government.” She then compared the government cut to women obtaining the right to vote – not a popular decision but a necessary one. The website “Save Our Advisory Council” added this quote under the title “Priceless”.

The official reason given by the government to abolish the Advisory Council was that each department had to come up with cuts and so the minister cut the Council instead of cutting services to battered women. Since March the government has created new publicly funded commissions (on issues important to the government) and continues to fund other commissions set up in the past. I guess publicly funding achieving women’s equality was not high enough on the priority list.

Few people believed that official reason, because it made no sense and because it was more likely that the government had just seized the opportunity afforded by a financial “situation” to get rid of an independent voice.

Some might women should expect nothing for now, because the province is under a financial crisis. That reminds me of those countries where daughters are undernourished compared to their brothers because families value boys. Should those girls have to wait for the family income to increase before they get their share? To ask women to wait for equality in New Brunswick makes about as much sense.

Notes for a discussion on an alternative to the ACSW/Notes pour discuter d’une alternative au CCCF

This document was produced by the Ad Hoc Committee for a Council on the Status of Women/ Ce document fut produit par le Comité ad hoc pour un conseil sur la condition de la femm

We do not believe, as some ministers do, that “all the functions previously performed by the ACSW/CCCF can be fulfilled by the personnel of the Women’s Issues Branch”.   However, we are prepared to discuss with an open mind in order to find a satisfactory compromise for all.

If this government “wants to do things differently”, we want to participate in the development of an alternative that addresses women’s needs and concerns while taking into account the budgetary restrictions imposed on the rest of the government.

The following principles must serve as a basis in this exercise:

  • Women must have an independent voice that is recognized by the government;
  • A central role must be to advise the government on matters of interest and concern to women, and bringing such matters before the public;
  • The organization must be representative of New Brunswick women (Anglophones, francophone’s, Aboriginal women and minorities) and should be accessible to all.
  • Sufficient resources must be allocated to enable success for its mission and mandate.

 

The following functions need to be re-established:

  • A strong independent voice for women in a context where women are under-represented in government and in a province where women struggle for their rights as well as for social and economic equity.
  • The capacity to conduct expert research and to work in collaboration with institutions, community groups, women’s advocacy groups and qualified researchers to conduct gender-based research to inform government policies and programs and to ensure that government has a true picture of the realities and challenges that women face in the province.
  • A toll-free phone number to make information on relevant women’s programs and services accessible to all women in the province.
  • Support and partnership for women’s interest and equity groups.

The ACSW/CCCF Act being still in effect, it could be amended to reflect an alternative and address current needs.  For instance:

  • The name could be changed to reflect the role of education, advocacy, and an inclusive public voice for women.
  • The mandate must should include regular surveys of New Brunswick women’s needs and interests, and making these known to the government and the public.
  • The President of a renewed organization should assume her role publicly, whether full or part-time.  She must be bilingual.
  • While the number of members might be decreased, the law could prescribe a consultation mechanism to ensure the input of various sectors of society in the nomination process.

In summary, a renewed organization must be as independent as its predecessor, and sufficiently equipped vis-à-vis mandate and budget to be able to publicly represent women’s voices on issues identified as priority.

 

Nous ne partageons pas l’avis de certains ministres à l’effet que les fonctions que remplissait le CCCF peuvent être assumées par le personnel transféré à la Direction de la condition féminine. Cependant, nous sommes disposées à entreprendre avec un esprit ouvert, un dialogue avec le gouvernement afin de trouver compromis satisfaisant pour toutes et tous.

Puisque le gouvernement affirme qu’il veut faire les choses autrement, nous voulons participer au développement d’une alternative qui tienne compte des besoins et préoccupations des femmes dans le contexte des restrictions budgétaires imposées au reste du gouvernement.

 

Les principes suivants doivent servir de base à cet exercice :

  • Les femmes devront avoir une voix indépendante reconnue par le gouvernement;
  • Le principal rôle de cet organisme devra être d’aviser le gouvernement sur les questions qui concernent et intéressent les femmes et de porter ces questions à l’attention tant du public que du gouvernement.
  • Cet organisme doit être représentatif des femmes de la province (anglophones, francophones autochtones et autres minorités).  Il doit aussi être accessible à toutes les femmes de la province.
  • Des ressources suffisantes devront lui être assurées pour assumer son rôle.

 

Les fonctions suivantes devront être rétablies :

  • Une voix forte et indépendante dans un contexte de sous représentation des femmes au sein du gouvernement et dans une province où les femmes doivent encore lutter pour leurs droits et pour l’équité sociale et économique.
  • La capacité de faire de la recherche et d’établir des liens de collaboration avec des institutions, organismes communautaires, groupes de défense de droits des femmes ou des chercheuses compétentes  pour réaliser des recherches sur les questions de genre pour que le  gouvernement puisse avoir un portrait clair de la situation réelle des femmes dans cette province.
  • L’accessibilité par une ligne téléphonique sans frais, permettant aux femmes d’obtenir de l’information sur les services disponibles dans la province.
  • L’appui aux divers groupes de défense des droits des femmes.

 

La Loi du Conseil consultatif sur la condition de la femme, qui est toujours active, pourrait être amendée pour répondre aux besoins de l’heure.  Par exemple,

  • Le nom pourrait être changé, si nécessaire, pour refléter un rôle de défenseure des femmes ou de voix publique des femmes.
  • Son mandat doit lui permettre de sonder les besoins et les intérêts des femmes de la province pour en être la voix auprès du gouvernement et devant le public.
  • La présidente devra assumer son rôle publiquement, que ce soit à plein temps ou à temps partiel.
  • Le nombre de membres pourrait être diminué et un mécanisme pourrait être prescrit dans la loi pour assurer une consultation de divers secteurs de la société avant leur nomination.

 

En résumé, un organisme renouvelé doit être aussi indépendant que son prédécesseur et avoir le mandat et les ressources nécessaires pour pouvoir publiquement représenter la voix des femmes sur les questions prioritaires identifiées.

News: “Gov’t planning women’s summit”

From the Times & Transcript: http://timestranscript.canadaeast.com/news/article/1449701:

The provincial government plans to hold a summit on women’s issues early next month after abolishing a watchdog and advisory group for women that was in place for more than 30 years.

Provincial cabinet Minister Margaret-Ann Blaney is to formally announce the Fredericton summit today, which she says will bring together women from across New Brunswick to identify measures that would give them a voice in the province.

“I don’t want women in New Brunswick to feel they don’t have a voice but I also want to make sure that we have a dialogue about what is it we need,” said Blaney, the MLA for Rothesay and the minister responsible for the Status of Women.

The Progressive Conservative government pulled its funding from the arm’s length Advisory Council on the Status of Women following its first budget in March as part of broader efforts to control spending. The move sparked protests in front of the provincial legislature in Fredericton, but the government didn’t back down from its controversial decision.

“A lot of women have said to me they didn’t even know there was an advisory council,” Blaney, also the environment minister, said in an interview.

“Other women have said to me, ‘Who will be the voice?’ And other women have said to me, ‘Do we need a voice?'”

The two-day summit on women’s issues, co-chaired by Blaney and Justice and Consumer Affairs Minister Marie-Claude Blais, will start at the Fredericton Inn on Nov. 4 with a discussion among non-governmental organizations that deal with women’s concerns. The following day, individual women, such as university students, stay-at-home mothers and business leaders, will gather for a talk on women’s issues.

“If women are feeling they don’t have a voice, I need to hear that,” Blaney said.

“I need to know what needs to be in place to ensure that there is one.”

The advisory council was responsible for promoting equal status, treatment and benefits for women and for recommending related legislation, policies and practices to the province, among other roles. The Alward government cut the group’s $413,000 in funding and folded some of its responsibilities into the women’s issues branch.

That sparked public outcry over fears the branch, part of a central government office, would not be as effective holding government to account as the advisory council, which operated at arm’s length.

“This summit is really important because it involves women from all walks of life,” Blaney said.

“And I think women have been looking for a way to talk about what’s meaningful for women in today’s society and whether we need to put another mechanism in place.”

CONSEIL CONSULTATIF SUR LA CONDITION DE LA FEMME NÉCESSAIRE AUJOURD’HUI PLUS QUE JAMAIS : LIBÉRAUX

mercredi 29 juin 2011

http://nbliberal.ca/fr/1443/status-of-women-advocacy-needed-now-more-than-ever-liberals

FREDERICTON – Pendant qu’un groupe de femmes se réunis en dehors de l’Assemblée législative pour manifester contre la perte de services cliniques de santé sexuelle pour ceux âgées de 20 à 24 ans, il est clair qu’un groupe de pression indépendant pour les femmes est nécessaire aujourd’hui plus que jamais, a dit Victor Boudreau, chef  de l’Opposition libérale.

« Si jamais on avait besoin du Conseil consultatif sur la condition de la femme, c’est maintenant, » a dit M. Boudreau.  « Le Conseil sur la condition de la femme était une organisation indépendante qui pouvait parler au nom des femmes contre le gouvernement lorsque celui-ci prenait la mauvaise route, tout comme l’a fait le gouvernement Alward lorsqu’il a coupé les services de santé sexuelle pour le groupe qui a un plus grand besoin pour ces services. »

Bill Fraser, critique de la Santé pour l’Opposition officielle, a fait l’annonce des changements aux services de santé sexuelle lors du Budget principal des dépenses du ministère de la Santé pendant la dernière session législative.  À l’époque, les Néo-Brunswickois ont appris que, malgré ce que la ministre de la Santé a décrit comme étant une « épidémie » d’infections transmises sexuellement (ITS), le gouvernement éliminait les services de santé sexuelle pour les femmes âgées de 20 à 24 ans.

L’Assemblée législative a aussi entendu que trois des quatre médecins qui pratiquaient à la clinique de santé sexuelle ici à Fredericton ont démissionnés de leurs postes pour protester contre les coupures de service.

Le chef Libéral par intérim a suggéré que si le Conseil consultatif sur la condition de la femme existait toujours, on aurait pu appuyer de la pression afin d’éviter cette mauvaise décision.  Le Conseil consultatif a été éliminé par David Alward, malgré sa promesse dans sa plateforme électorale de travailler avec le groupe qu’il a éliminé à la première occasion.

« En éliminant le Conseil consultatif sur la condition de la femme, ce gouvernement à essayer de museler la voix des femmes, » a dit M. Boudreau.

« Si le Conseil sur la condition de la femme existait toujours, les femmes auraient une voix forte sur cette question, » a-t-il ajouté.  « Voilà un exemple de pourquoi nous faisons appel à la ministre (Margaret-Ann) Blaney de réinstaurer immédiatement le financement au Conseil consultatif. »

STATUS OF WOMEN ADVOCACY NEEDED NOW MORE THAN EVER: LIBERALS/

Wednesday June 29th, 2011
FREDERICTON – As women gather outside the provincial Legislature to protest the loss of sexual health clinic services for those ages 20-24, it’s clear that an independent, arms’ length advocacy group for women is needed now more than ever, Victor Boudreau, Leader of the Official Opposition Liberals, says.

“If ever we’ve needed the Advisory Council on the Status of Women, it is now,” Boudreau commented. “The Status of Women council was that independent organization that could speak out on behalf of women against the government when it took the wrong path, as the Alward government did when it cut sexual health services to the age group that most needs those services.”

Opposition Health Critic Bill Fraser broke the news of the changes in sexual health services during the main estimates of the Department of Health during the last Legislative session. At that time, New Brunswickers learned that, despite what the Minister of Health described as an “epidemic” of sexually transmitted infections (STIs), the government was eliminating sexual health services to women ages 20-24.

The Legislative Assembly also heard that three out of four doctors practising at a Fredericton sexual health clinic had resigned their positions in protest of the cut to services.

The interim Liberal leader suggests that had the Status of Women advisory council still been in existence, pressure could have been applied to avoid this bad decision from happening. The advisory council was eliminated by David Alward, despite his promise in his election platform to work with the group that he eliminated at the first opportunity.

“By eliminating the Advisory Council on the Status of Women, this government sought to silence the voices of women,” Boudreau charged.

“If the Status of Women council was still around, women would have a strong voice on this issue,” he added. “This is a prime example of why we’ve been calling on Minister (Margaret-Ann) Blaney to immediately reinstate funding to the Advisory Council.”

Priceless Quotation from Last Week’s Debate on the Motion to Reinstate the ACSW

Quote from Dorothy Shephard MLA, Saint John Lancaster:

I understand that women across the province were surprised by this decision. There is some fear

about the future of women’s issues. We hear that, and we are listening. That is the difference:

We are listening.

 

Change can be scary, and it is often met with opposition. Nellie McClung met with opposition

when she petitioned to give all Canadian women the right to vote, but this change was a good

change. Agnes Macphail was met with opposition when she put her name on the federal ballot.

She became the first woman elected to Parliament. It was a big change, but it was a good change.

 

When Emily Murphy became the first women appointed as a magistrate in Canada—in fact, the

first female magistrate in the entire British Empire—it was a big change to the way our country administered

justice, but it was a good change. Mine could not compare with the milestones achieved by the aforementioned

women, but I am an independent businesswoman. I have worked for 30 years in what used to a very

maledominated industry. I know what it is like to work side by side with male counterparts and to be perceived

as inferior. We—and I mean women and women’s issues—have come a long way in 30 years. I am confident

that our government will continue to promote the voices of women and women’s issues. Bringing women’s

advocacy wholly into Minister Blaney’s portfolio is a big change, but it is also a good change. It signals the end

of women’s issues being at arm’s length of the government, and it signals the end of the division between the

advisory council and the Women’s Issues Branch. Down the road, as the Women’s Issues Branch continues to

advocate for the status of women in New Brunswick, this change will also be recorded as a good change.
