Women's Network PEI (WNPEI) is a not-for-profit organization based in the province of Prince Edward Island, Canada. We work to strengthen and support community efforts to improve the status of women in our society. Through our project work, we promote equality, using feminist analysis and practice, and address issues that affect women in our province. We provide a forum for the voices of PEI women and opportunities for women to realize power, knowledge, skills, abilities, vision and financial security. We also act as a referral service to help women find programs and services they may need.

Common Ground Special Issue - March 2020 -- from Creating Common Ground by Anne McCallum (page 19): In late September 1981, when I was six-and-a-half months pregnant with my second child, I responded to an intriguing ad in The Guardian for a part-time editor of a new PEI publication, as yet undeveloped and unnamed. Its purpose was to create a forum for the diverse voices of PEI women; to empower women by recognizing their achievements and potential; to raise awareness about issues around gender equality, and to facilitate communication among women's organizations. [...] In the spirit of inclusiveness, we named our new PEI women's publication Common Ground to emphasize the common ground that women of all ages and backgrounds shared, and for 14 years, we published a 32-page issue every two months.
