In the late 1970s, feminists urged us to "rethink" Canada by placing women's experiences at the centre of historical analysis. Forty years later, women's and gender historians continue to take up the challenge, not only to interrogate the idea of nation but also to place their work in a global perspective. This volume showcases the work of scholars who draw on critical race theory, postcolonial theory, and transnational history to re-examine familiar topics such as biography and oral history, paid and unpaid work, marriage and family, and women's political action. Taken together, these exciting new essays demonstrate the continued relevance of history informed by feminist perspectives.

MEDIA REVIEWS

... a thoughtful, well-written and ultimately convincing compilation of essays composed by leading scholars who have forever shaped the fields of women's and gender history in Canada ... this collection evocatively features works that demonstrate the important contributions women have made to the economic, social and cultural realm of Canada. With a strong focus on biography, the authors present a unique flare to Canadian feminist history, offering rich descriptions of various conditions, interactions and experiences faced by individual and collective groups of women over time. This anthology focuses on a wide range of issues and explores a variety of important themes, covering the latest debates in the field and providing thought-provoking analysis to questions that have long interested feminist historians.
