Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"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.
