FREDERICTON (GNB) – Justice Minister and Attorney General Marie-Claude Blais, who is also minister responsible for Women's Issues, is meeting with women's advocates and advocacy groups following a commitment made at the 2011 Voices of New Brunswick Women Summit.

"Hearing the voices of women is fundamental to democracy, building strong communities and achieving gender equality," said Blais.

At that summit, it was recommended that the provincial government continue to work with stakeholders to identify and develop strategies and mechanisms to ensure that the voices of New Brunswick women continue to be heard.
