The Women's Committee is established for the purpose of promoting greater understanding of the UAW's policies and programs, and to further the objectives of our union in the communities in which we live. This committee conducts programs which are of special interest to women. Emphasis should be put on the fact that the Women's Committee is an integral part of the local union. It is not an auxiliary. It is not a social committee. It is a viable committee that should motivate and educate the local women to become more active in their union. All programs should involve the women in the local so that they may fully participate in their union.
