The 1992 edition of the fact sheets provides information on new and revised Canadian government programs and policies about the implementation of the Nairobi Forward-looking Strategies for the Advancement of Women program that were adopted at the United Nations World Conference on Women in Kenya in 1985. This edition continues to address the ongoing issues of concern to women such as violence against women, AIDS, women and the law, the special needs of aboriginal women, and visible minority women. The subject areas of the fact sheets include: (1) institutional and political structures; (2) legal issues; (3) work and family responsibilities; (4) employment; (5) economic policies and planning; (6) human environments; (7) health; (8) education, statistics, and research; (9) gender discrimination; (10) women with special needs; (11) peace; and (12) international and regional cooperation. Each of the fact sheets has the name of the issue, along with relevant paragraphs from the Nairobi Forward-looking Strategies that relate to the subject. The second section of each fact sheet shows a summary of the strategies identified. The third section provides current information on the issues addressed by the Canadian government in partnership with the provinces and territories. Some fact sheets contain a fourth section about Canada's initiatives to address and encourage worldwide implementation of the Strategies and a fifth section of references to further information. (CK)
