Monique Begin begins the first section, which deals with women's physical and mental health, with a critical evaluation of the Canadian health-care system. In the section on women's well-being in the workplace, Caroline Andrew, Cecile Coderre, and Ann Denis examine the situation of a group of women managers, and Nancy Guberman explores the role of women in caring for dependent adults in the home and community. The third section investigates the issue of well-being for minority women: Kabahenda Nyakabwa and Carol D.H. Harvey analyse the case of Black immigrant women and Mary O'Brien reviews the stereotypes of older, unmarried women. In the final section, the authors -- among them Marguerite Andersen, Maureen Leyland, and Maureen Jessop Orton -- concern themselves with ensuring the well-being of women by increasing their power in society through knowledge. Other contributors to this volume are: Leslie Bella, Cathryn Boak, Dawn Currie, Megan Barker Davies, Claire V. de la Durantaye, Gloria R. Geller, Madeline Jean Graveline, Elayne M. Harris, Andrea Lebowitz, Doris McIlroy, Joanne Prindiville, Monique Raimbault, Ghyslaine Savaria, and Eva A. Szekely. This collection includes essays in both English and French.
