Women Deliver Conference

Jean Augustine discusses the Women deliver conference button.

TRANSCRIPT
These are all around March the 8th; International Women’s Day, this one again is back in 85, Women Deliver. It’s kind of like a little message, a little, you know? And again, a play on words; we deliver babies but we deliver, and the play on words is really give us the position in the workplace and we’ll deliver the goods. We’ll perform and you know, do everything equally but it’s a play on the word deliver here. I don’t remember who did this button. There is something on the side, I’m not too sure if it’s a manufacturer or it’s an organization.  Something [about] Nova Scotia on the side here. And again, it has the Status of Women’s logo in the middle here.
