Administrative history

The Status of Women Office Carleton University was created to inform faculty, students and staff about status of women issues and to promote women’s equality in all arenas, especially in relation to women’s employment equity and their right to work and learn in an environment free from harassment and discrimination. Status of Women Officer positions were instituted across many Ontario universities to advise faculty and staff about issues and concerns on campus. They held varied reporting relationships within the university structure and officers often worked on status of women issues in conjunction with their regular full-time faculty and staff duties. The Carleton University Co-ordinator for the Status of Women attended conferences and meetings of affiliated bodies such as the Ontario Confederation of University Faculty Associations (OCUFA) Standing Committee on the Status of Women and the Council of Ontario Universities (COU) Committee on the Status of Women. These committees created reports, briefs, and recommendations to facilitate equal treatment of women in education and employment.

Custodial history

Scope and content

The Status of Women Office Carleton University fonds consists mainly of resource and publicity material accrued by the Office as reference material for faculty, staff and students. The fonds is particularly strong in educational kits, reports and papers that relate to gender equity in the workplace and to women’s status, more generally, as conducted by both grassroots and established feminist organizations. The fonds includes a limited number of records from Status of Women Officers conferences as well as buttons.
