Mary Scott

Mary has had a long association with Westminster, coming as a child with her grandmother. She has served as Chair of Outreach, and on the Ministry and Personnel Committee. After retiring in 1995, Mary had the opportunity to attend the 4th World Conference in Beijing China, which exposed her to the numerous challenges women face in many parts of the world. She is the co-founder of the Institute for International Women’s Rights – Manitoba, which put on an outstanding event in 2015 Raising Our Voices: Celebrating International Women’s Day, here at Westminster. Mary is currently a member of the Manitoba Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls Coalition, and was honoured this summer to be a Grandmother at a Sundance.
