Gender and Politics in Contemporary Canada is a collection of over 12 essays by different university researchers interested in how the lives of men and women are affected by politics. The book adopts no specific ideology, but readers will easily discover that all authors share the view that Canadian society and polity still treat men and women unequally. This book is research-oriented, ie it presents interpretations based on well-researched facts. Most chapters have previously been presented at learned conferences and have been revised for inclusion in this collection. Authors come from 12 different universities across Canada. Most (but not all) authors are women, including well-known academics such as Caroline Andrew, Sandra Burt, Monique Dumais, Micheline Dumont, Roberta Hamilton, Gertrude Robinson, Alan Whitehorn. Disciplines represented are Communications, Ethics, Political Science, Religious Studies, and Sociology.
"This collection provides an important resource to students of women and politics in Canada because several of the chapters are theoretically or methodologically innovative, or address relatively unexplored or underexplored topics, or set the agenda for future research."--American Political Science Review
