Women and the Canadian State/Les femmes et l'Etat canadien



Women and the Canadian State/Les femmes et l'Etat canadien by Caroline Andrew, Sandra Rodgers

Awareness of the history of the interaction between women and the Canadian state is central to understanding and evaluating action in the present and in the future. Women and the Canadian State makes an important contribution to the ongoing debate. Contributors include Dyane Adam, Naomi Alboim, Pat Armstrong, Monique Begin, Florence Bird, Claire Bonenfant, Lorenne M.G. Clark, Maria de Koninck, Martha Flaherty, Catherine Frazee, Nitya Iyer, Jane Jenson, Diane Lamoureux, Marie Lavigne, Wendy Moss, Mary Jane Mossman, Marie Murphy, Teressa Anne Nahanee, Maureen O'Neil, Freda L. Paltiel, Carol Smart, Joanne St Lewis, Nancy Sullivan, Sharon Sutherland, Mary Ellen Turpel (Aki-Kwe), and Jane Ursel.


Women and the Canadian State makes a significant contribution to feminist public policy literature, providing a fresh viewpoint on the issue. The interpretations of the relationships among women's organizations and femocrats have not previously been available and will advance scholarship considerably. I strongly recommend it. Jill Vickers, Canadian Studies Department, Carleton University.
