Status of Women (NAC) and the Communist Connection?!

"…[that] the [Communist] Party work to strengthen its involvement in the National Action Committee on the Status of Women (NAC) at both the Canada wide and regional levels…" [Communist Party of Canada — Party Organization and Plan of Work]

The feminists at NAC don't like anyone to use the full abbreviation of the name of the National Action Committee for the Status of Women.  That serves them right for incorporating the term "status of women" (devised by Marx and Engels, the authors of the Communist Manifesto, which became the redfem's bible) into the name of their organization.

That reminds me of the time, many years ago, when I was involved (long before before mechanization became all-pervasive) in constructing a record system for the telecommunication corporation I worked for.  I wasn't that good with my English yet.  Therefore I had difficulties understanding why my proposal for the wonderful name I had devised for the new record system that eventually brought order into the chaos of the cancerous growth of the telecommunications system network fell on deaf ears.  I had wanted to call it "Network Facilities Growth Plan Record System"....

Eventually I understood why that was, but I still cannot understand why the name of the Project Management System whose design I became involved in as a user representative a few years later was quite acceptable.  Maybe the powers wanted the development efforts for that data management system to fail, which those efforts eventually, $1.6 million later, as predicted when the development costs had amounted to only about $50,000, predictably did.

Ideologists who pursue destructive ideologies at all and any costs do exist in all sectors of society, but nowhere is that as true as in politics, and nowhere more so than in the politics of sex.

Many people labeled members of the radical feminist (more accurately called redfem) factions of the women's liberation movement with the nickname "feminazi."  It isn't quite right to give them that name.  The ideology of radical feminism (a.k.a. Marxist- or socialist feminism) isn't rooted in fascism, it is rooted quite firmly in communist ideology and is in fact transformed communism — communism that evolved into gender-Marxism from within itself, from as far back as the early 1940s.  Therefore, why not call radical feminists femicommies or, better yet, redfems?

If the term "radical feminism" (a.k.a. Marxist- or socialist-feminism) is somewhat new to you, you need to expand your knowledge.  After all, radical feminism, the currently controlling faction of feminism, governs just about everything that is happening in your life.  See,

In her article "The Planned Destruction of the Family," Erin Pizzey describes how the redfems that in the seventies took over the women's liberation movement were fond to hang Mao posters in their living rooms and had copies of Mao's "Little Red Book" at hand that they handed over to prospective members.  Is it possible that today's redfems don't have these communist leanings any longer?

OTTAWA, October 3, 2001 (LSN.ca) - Speaking at a government funded feminist conference, leading Canadian feminist Sunera Thobani, a woman's study professor at the University of British Columbia (UBC), said "the path of U.S. foreign policy is soaked in blood." CTV reported that Thobani's speech implied that the US brought the terrorist attacks on New York and Washington on themselves. During her address, Thobani, a women's studies professor at the University of British Columbia and former head of the National Action Committee on the Status of Women (NAC), said the United States is "the most dangerous and most powerful global force unleashing horrific levels of violence."

The National Post reports that the Canadian federal government contributed an estimated $80,000 to fund the 'Women's Resistance' conference, at which Ms. Thobani was a keynote speaker. And as she condemned the US, the 500 women in the audience interrupted Ms. Thobani with cheers and a standing ovation. Sitting on stage with Thobani at the conference was federal Liberal MP Hedy Fry, Secretary of State for Status of Women and Multiculturalism who did not disassociate herself from Thobani's comments at the time. Federal Liberal governments have for years been the biggest supporters of redfem organizations.

Gwen Landolt of REAL Women Canada told LifeSite, "NAC has a long history of such radical policies and statements. It has consistently interpreted 'equality' in accordance with extreme Marxist policies rather than representing the views of mainstream Canadian women." In the June 1987 issue of World Marxist Review, it was stated that the Communist Party of Canada, which is a NAC affiliate, has been highly successful in promoting its policies through NAC, such as opposition to NATO."

Is it possible for a leopard to shed his spots?  It isn't clear from the information provided below whether the National Action Committee on the Status of Women (NAC) still has firm connections with the Communist Party of Canada, but it is clear that the Communist Party likes far more about NAC than just its communist-inspired name. 

At the very least, the fact that clearly communist rhetoric was spouted at the Vancouver 'Women's Resistance' conference would indicate that the National Action Committee on the Status of Women shows that nothing much has changed over the years.  The most frightening aspect of it is that NAC came into existence through the efforts of the Liberal Government under Pierre Elliot Trudeau and received political and financial support ever since.  NAC even has got its very own Secretary of State, but Canadian Families have nothing but punitive taxation.

If that isn't communism in action, what is?

Statement by the Communist Party of Canada


The Central Committee of the Communist Party of Canada met over the weekend of Oct. 4 - 6, 1996, for its third full session since the Party's 31st Convention in May 1995. The meeting took place in Toronto, the focus of massive organizing campaigns for the Oct. 22 - 27 Metro Days of Action, a huge series of protests by labour and community groups against the Tory government of Ontario.
The following is a summary of the CC Report delivered by Elizabeth Rowley and the main points raised during the discussion.

Across Canada today, the fightback against the corporate attack is growing but still very uneven, with the greatest militancy in Ontario and in Eastern Canada. The massive struggles against the Harris government should help to stimulate a broader fightback in other provinces, and to help raise the class consciousness of Canadian workers, but this will not happen spontaneously.

The last year there has seen some important working class struggles: the strike by Calgary hospital workers which won broad support and blunted Klein's health care cutbacks; the unrelenting struggle of workers in the Atlantic provinces against the UI cuts which hit that region hardest; the Women's March Against Poverty organized by the National Action Committee on the Status of Women, with the CLC's support; struggles by the women's movement and the youth and student movement in Quebec; the B.C. grocery workers strike and the upsurge in strike actions in Manitoba.
The following discussion paper for the "Canada at the Forks" conference, was approved by the Central Committee for presentation in the name of the Communist Party of Canada.

.… For decades we have advocated new constitutional arrangements, to recognize the realities of the First Nations, Quebec, and the rest of Canada. The wellknown Marxist historian, Stanley B. Ryerson, authored important books on this question, such as French Canada , The Founding of Canada , and Unequal Union . Ryerson and other Canadian Communists helped pioneer the concept that Canada as a state comprises more than one nation a difficult idea for many in socalled "Englishspeaking Canada" to accept, even though there are many examples of such states around the world. Communists were among those who led the Canadian Labour Congress, the National Action Committee on the Status of Women, and other groups to recognize Quebec as a distinct nation within the Canadian state.

NAC says "women's rights are human rights"

By Barbara Moore, Chair, CPC Women's Commission

The National Action Committee on the Status of Women celebrated its 25th Anniversary during its Sept. 19-21 annual general meeting in Ottawa. To mark the 50th Anniversary of the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights, NAC is initiating a priority plan of action to assert that "Women's Rights are Human Rights."
    NAC President Joan Grant-Cummings told delegates that Canada has failed to live up to many of its international commitments to eliminate barriers faced by women to full equality and advancement, and in fact, women's rights and equality are being eroded. In addition, Ottawa intends to further cut back and change the funding structure of federal women's programs to only project funding - a direct attack on the survival of women's groups, and an attempt to control their activities.
    The NAC Plan of Action will include mobilizing national women's organizations and allies to ensure that the federal government keeps its commitments to Canadian women, and to press for ongoing, core and adequate funding to women's groups.

Other specifics in the Plan include:

  • Providing ongoing support to Aboriginal women's groups who are pursuing their human rights to rectify the problems brought about by Bill C-31, which replaced Section 12(1)(b) of the Indian Act in 1985, four years after the UN declared that the section violated the rights of aboriginal women. The controversial Bill C-31 has caused polarization between "Bill C-31" women and band members.  "Bill C-31" women are seeking to regain their full status and band membership; many band leaders are resisting their efforts because of the scant resources available on their reserves. Unwed Bill C-31 mothers are being forced to provide affidavits attesting to the recognized "status" of the fathers of their children, so that the children can gain "status." Conservative Senator Walter Twinn is challenging the constitutionality of Bill C-31 in the courts; if he succeeds, this could leave many aboriginal women and children without status or protected rights on reserves.

  • NAC will begin a forceful public education campaign regarding Canada's failure to live up to its commitments to United Nations agreements.  Particular focus on the impact of these failures will be on aboriginal women, women of colour, women with disabilities, lesbians, young women, and women living in poverty.

  • NAC will promote the second international "Women Against APEC" conference, November 17-18 in Vancouver, in conjunction with the People's Summit on APEC. NAC will also campaign against the Multilateral Agreement on Investment (MAI).

  • Women's economic rights will be targeted by NAC. Rights such as pay equity will be promoted together with PSAC and the CLC.

  • In partnership with the CLC and the Federation des femmes du Quebec, NAC will participate in organizing the International Bread and Roses Women's March, for equality, development and peace, initiated by the FFQ, in the year 2000.

Communist Party of Canada — Party Organization and Plan of Work


(d) An Action Plan for the Recruitment of Women

In order to improve the participation of women in the CPC, the Party should commit to increasing the membership of women to 40% (of total party membership) as a target goal by the 33rd Convention; the Women's Commission should produce a special pamphlet (by International Women's Day, March 8, 1998) for wide distribution and to be used as a recruitment tool by all Clubs; the CC should strongly encourage, where possible, provincial and/or regional committees to form women's commissions which would meet on a regular basis and forward recommendations on party policies to these bodies, and work in conjunction with the Central Women s Commission; all Clubs should be encouraged to include in their plan of work concrete proposals to increase the recruitment of women, and organize at least one educational on women s struggles each year; the Party works to strengthen its involvement in the National Action Committee on the Status of Women (NAC) at both the Canada wide and regional levels, and work to further the aims and objectives of women working for socialist transformation in Canada and globally; gender equality will be a main criteria in the election and appointment of party leadership including cadres and staff within the CPC.

Meeting of the Central Committee, Communist Party of Canada Feb. 2-4, 1996


35. This movement finds reflection in growing support for a democratic process to resolve the crisis, and specifically around the call for a Constituent Assembly (CA). Several organizations, including the National Action Committee on the Status of Women (NAC), and Constituent Assembly Now (CAN) have come out in favour of the proposal, an idea long advanced by our Party. Numerous academics, constitutional experts and political commentators have also taken up the demand, all of which is helping to advance this alternative into wide public debate. …

41. We should actively explore as well whether it would be possible to convene a broadly based conference or forum, bringing together the labour movement, native organizations, NAC, ACN, CFS, and a host of other democratic organizations and movements in both Quebec and the rest of Canada to discuss the "Political, Economic and Social Future of Canada." We believe that such a bold initiative, which (among other things) could serve to broaden support for the campaign for a Constituent Assembly, as well as a coordinated fightback against the corporate assault, would be enthusiastically received by the broadest democratic circles.

The affiliation with the Social Development Network and Trillium


The Latest News

SDN has been approved for a $25,000 development grant from the Trillium Foundation. This funding will be used to:

broaden participation in voluntary sector network development,

examine the current state of networking initiatives in Ontario.

identify leading and innovative organizations

invite these organizations to participate formally as collaborators in the Social Development Network.

NAC is listed as one of the affiliated organizations

If you ever wondered why so many ideas by local women's organizations seem to be in synch with those of other localities:

The United Nations Development Programme


    The Programme of Assistance to the Palestinian People (PAPP) began work in the Occupied Palestinian Territories in 1980 and has grown steadily. Its scope has expanded to provide Palestinians with infrastructure, large scale training projects, and technical assistance for institution building.


Initiative 1: Estimated Cost: $800,000
Community-Based Training and Awareness

Palestinian rural women have been disadvantaged in receiving access to information. UNDP, through the expansion of on-going outreach projects implemented either by UNDP or civil society organizations, will facilitate the establishment of a network of women's fora to promote information and knowledge-sharing. Issues to be addressed through these community-outreach fora include:

     Enhancement of school enrollment for girls and access to social services including physical and mental health care.

     Counselling and education on HIV/AIDS awareness and prevention.

     Advancement of the legal status of women.

     Skill training in specialized areas to enable Palestinian women to become better leaders, managers, and income- generators.

These community-outreach fora, which will be implemented in close cooperation with UNICEF, UNIFEM, ILO, UNRWA, UNESCO, and any other relevant UN agencies, are intended to raise awareness of women and stimulate community discussions on key issues, so as to expand women's choices in general.

Initiative 2: Estimated Cost: $450,000
Improving the Image of Women in the Media

This project aims to promote the production of gender-sensitive media material through training of media personnel in the Palestinian Broadcasting body, concerned ministries and Civil Society Organizations (CSOs). Activities will also be conducted to increase awareness of the negative representation of women in various forms of media, and encouragement of advocacy activities

Another instance of government bias and expenditures in favour of women through the interference and influence of Secretary of State Status of Women Hedy Fry:


Finding Data on Women:
A Guide to Major Data Sources at Statistics Canada .


This document was produced by Statistics Canada for Status of Women Canada to give women's groups, organizations, policy analysts, and other data users a comprehensive overview of the scope and diversity of data available on Canadian women, as well as an indication of the ways in which these data can be used. While not exhaustive, the report highlights the wealth of information on women that Statistics Canada collects and disseminates.

[There is no comparable resource available for Canadian men no comparable "wealth of information on...[men]...that Statistics Canada collects and disseminates."  There is no funding for men's issues, no battered men's shelters, and there is little funding for research into men's health issues.  There is only funding for the promotion of the vilification of men.  There is, however, and always has been, liberal funding by the Liberal Party of Canada for the National Action Committee for the Status of Women and a special government department of the Secretary of State, Status of Women.  It is closely aligned with NAC and eagerly promotes the same agenda as NAC, the vilification of men. —WHS]

The planned destruction of the family was part of the communist agenda from its inception by Karl Marx and Frederic Engels.   It became government policy in the USSR in about 1917. It was so successful that it threatened to destroy society in the USSR.  Curiously, while in the 1940s the USSR took steps to repair the damages its family-hostile policies had caused, American communists imported the Soviet agenda for the planned destruction of the family into the USA.  It has been and continues to be promoted by left-leaning liberals in the West ever since.

When it was determined that this type of class warfare directed at the family was a complete failure, the Soviets worked quickly to restore the traditional nuclear family in the 1940’s.  Shortly after this, the NAWL (National Association of Women Lawyers) began their push for adopting these failed Soviet policies in America. America’s version of “family law” has adopted much of the early Soviet failed version of class warfare, while adopting new and more insidious Gramscian versions with gender, cultural, and social warfare components.
