The oldest member of the Saskatoon YWCA is calling on young people to promote women’s participation in decision-making processes.
“Women have universally been the caretakers at home and people who made sure the meetings were open. But when it came to making the decisions, often the decision maker is the other gender. It should be some of both because we all have our own ideas,” Betsy Bury told CBC News at a community celebration of her birthday Friday.
Some 50 people gathered at Saskatoon’s YWCA Friday to honour her work and mark her birthday.
