The Promise of Women's History

Sixth Edition

  • Fresh perspective. Eighteen new articles include recent material on indigenous, immigrant, and racialized experiences; work and labour; sexuality and the body; religion and spirituality; politics; and regional analysis.
  • Original editorial commentaries. All new articles are framed by brand-new historical and contextual analyses.
  • Engaging primary source documents. Twenty-four new photographs, newspaper clippings, letters, and other original pieces stimulate interest and help students contextualize the realities of the female experience throughout Canadian history.
  • Balanced coverage. Increased treatment of early women's history makes the text an even better fit for half-semester courses spanning 1600-1912 as well as full-year courses covering the seventeenth to twenty-first centuries.
  • Online learning centre. Essential for women's history instructors and students alike, the new companion sites feature additional pedagogy and resource tools including additional study questions, essay assignments, suggestions for discussions/debates, tips for incorporating primary sources into lectures, additional further readings, journals, web links, and film suggestions.
