Literary Nonfiction. Women's Studies. Introduction by Marion Lynn. CANADIAN WOMAN STUDIES: AN INTRODUCTORY READER, THIRD EDITION, brings together articles on themes and topics at the forefront of feminist inquiry and research. Compiled of articles previously published in one of Canada's oldest feminist journals, Canadian Woman Studies/les cahiers de la femme, it offers a unique and historical perspective of feminism as well as provides an excellent introduction to feminist thought in Canada. The book continues to highlight the diversity of perspectives, the multiplicity of voices, and the interdisciplinary approach on which Women/Gender Studies is based. Recognizing the growing significance of Canadian feminist scholarship, this revised and updated third edition aims to situate Canada within a broader, transnational context. Articles consider the regional, urban, rural, linguistic, demographic and ethnic differences within the nation, as well as the ways women in Canada are impacted by various global factors. Sections include: Feminist Perspectives; Herstories; Work/Economy; Policy; Violence; Representation; Health; Activism and Resistance.
