Feminist Voices #15

Overview

This publication brings together three timely articles on Canadian issues requiring immediate attention: the lact of matrimonial property law on reserves, the appropriation of women's unpaid labour in the name of community development and the need for feminist bureaucratic structures capable of influencing policy-making. The articles by Beverley Jacobs and Mary Eberts, and Patricia Simpson treat the struggles of First Nations women to maintain access to property on reserve after the breakdown of a relationship and to support themselves after the death of their partners. Pauline Rankin's article studies the women's movements' loss of influence on government policy-making in spite of decades of advocacy.
