First published in 1996 this is a much anticipated revision of Professor Hamilton's introduction to Canadian society from a feminist theoretical viewpoint. The book examines Canadian society and feminist perspectives, and some of the key themes and concerns that have been raised by women's movements in Canada in the past thirty years. It presents a complete discussion of feminist theories and feminist challenges to the Canadian state with many examples.
