From the days of the fur trade through the contemporary period, women have played important roles in the public life of Canada. Until the 1970s, however, these contributions were generally overlooked. This book focuses on two questions: are the doors to participation presently open wider than they were in the past? How can these doors be opened wider, both in terms of real-world participation and our scholarly understanding of public engagement? These tightly argued essays shed new light on the public involvement of women. Sophisticated discussions of both solutions and problems make this book an indispensable resource for students and practitioners of politics at all levels.Chambers, Deborah, 159 Charlottetown Accord, 100, 164n10 Charlton, Chris, 85 Chatelaine, 94 Chow, Olivia, ... 86-87, 116, 117, 120t discourse: of equality, 23, 27; political, 138; racist, 45n1; white, liberal, 40-41 diversity, 5, 10-11, 20, 24, 26, 36, ...
