Review Quotes
An excellent text…the ideas are clearly presented…It provides an excellent review of the literature and analysis of the author's research data. - Natalie Beausoleil, Memorial University The author presents a solid review of the relevant literature and uses data from her own research. This method is particularly effective because it makes the material more real and accessible for students…The discussion questions are quite thoughtful and the weblinks are very appropriate…The extensive reference section provides a wealth of resources to help students further develop their knowledge of the subject matter. - Vivian Shalla, University of Guelph

Summaries
Back Cover Copy
Feminist Issuesoffers a lively and energetic collection of works on the nature of women's studies, from leading Canadian researchers and educators. Renowned editor Nancy Mandell brings exciting new material into this penultimate feminist text, with innovative debates on racism, sexuality, body image, age, and family.
Main Description
Feminist Issuespositions women's issues at the forefront of Canadian concerns. Authors explore the range and diversity of contemporary feminist perspectives as seen through the lens of race, class, sexuality, disability, and poverty. Each chapter addresses questions and social problems that have received little attention in Canadian writing. The editor, Nancy Mandell, has an excellent and widely-known reputation in the areas of women's and gender studies, and this collection offers a forum for all of the leading researchers and educators in Canada. The result is an innovative, challenging, and comprehensive survey of Canadian feminist issues today.
