The Canadian Federation of University Women in Haliburton Highlands is inviting the public to a general meeting.

CFUW promotes and encourages higher education of women and girls, to improve human rights and the status of women.

Publicity Convenor Wendy Hampson says they want the public to come to the event to enjoy a presentation of a high-profile speaker.

Hampson says locally the group gives out two scholarships to students every year.

The event is at Fleming College on May 19th, at 7:00pm.
