Women, Politics, and Public Policy

The Political Struggles of Canadian Women

Third Edition

Jacquetta Newman, Linda White, and Tammy Findlay

  • Concise. Now only 12 chapters (reduced from 13), the third edition of Women, Politics, and Public Policy is streamlined to highlight the most crucial concepts students need to build a strong foundation of knowledge in women's politics.
  • Revised coverage of contemporary topics. Recent advancements and setbacks in women's politics are covered in this third edition, reflecting key movements and campaigns such as #MeToo, Time's Up, the Million Women Marches, Black Lives Matter, and #GamerGate, along with the impact digital generations have on politics.
  • Key issues in intersectional feminism highlighted. A lens on topics such as gender identity and equality, LGBTQ+ communities, Indigenous women, Muslim veils, low-income earners, and the impacts of politics and policy on other minority or marginalized women brings critical issues to the forefront of students' minds.
  • Up-to-date statistics, data, and research provide current and concrete starting points for thoughtful analyses of women's representation in formal politics, funding to women's and child-care programs, employment equity, health care, immigration, and other major issues. Now with more figures and tables, this edition offers students additional visual representation of research and data for a more comprehensive learning experience.
  • Uniquely Canadian examples and research make complex theories and issues accessible and relevant to Canadian students.
