Still Ain't Satisfied: Canadian Feminism Today

Edited by Connie Guberman, Margie Wolfe & Maureen Fitzgerald

 

This collection of twenty-seven articles on the major women's issues of the 1980's shows why feminists had only begun to fight. Women were still paid less than their male counterparts, rape and wife battering remained brutal social problems and inadequate day care still threatened women's right to work. These and many other injustices that undermine more than fifty percent of Canada's population are thoughtfully explored in this provocative book. 

Talented writers from across the country review the dynamic changes in the women's movement. Controversial issues like abortion, pornography, sexuality and women and work are examined. Non-traditional jobs for women, day care, and rape are only a few of the many concerns brought into focus. Still Ain't Satisfied provides a stimulating look at some of the most important issues of the 1980s - issues which are just as relevant to women today.
