I call the meeting to order.
Good afternoon, everyone, and welcome to the 110th meeting of the Standing Committee on the Status of Women.
First of all I would like to apologize to the panellists. We did have votes, so we were delayed.
Before I go through formal introductions, I'm going to pass the floor immediately over to Roxanne Fairweather since she has to leave very shortly. I'm going to open it for Roxanne to do her opening remarks, and then we'll be able to ask Norma the questions that have to go with those remarks.
Roxanne, please go ahead.
