The Executive Committee of the CSA has voted to merge the former Status of Women and Anti-Racism Sub-Committees into a new Equity Sub-Committee. Various consultations with the membership took place around this, dating back to last June. The survey we ran produced 99 responses, 54% in favour of the merger, 34% opposed, the rest undecided. The exact number of CSA members varies day-by-day, but there would be at least 500 members simply not answering the survey and we took that to be a meaningful datum too. The new sub-committee will work on drafting up its defining document, taking care to acknowledge the importance of women’s issues and race issues, but also noting other dimensions for inequity.
