5 AGNEW, Vijay Resisting Discrimination : Women from Asia, Africa, and the Caribbean and the Women's Movement in Canada
University of Toronto Press, Toronto, 1996, ISBN:0802006744 
AGNEW, Vijay. Resisting Discrimination : Women from Asia, Africa, and the Caribbean and the Women's Movement in Canada. Toronto : University of Toronto Press, (1996). First Printing. Pp. (6),[vii]-x,(2),[3]-292,(2). 8vo, greycloth with metallic purple lettering to front and spine. "In her introduct ion to 'Resisting Discrimination', Vijay Agnew quotes Keibo Oiwa: 'We rarely encounter accounts of what the persecuted themselves felt, thought, wished to do, and actually did or failed to do; what meanings they attached to their thoughts and actions.' As Agnew observes, there is little Canadian feminist literature, from a minority perspective, on racism in feminist practice. 'Resisting Discrimination' is ground-breaking book. Focusing on the experiences of women from Asia, Africa, and the Caribbean, the volume exploresthe realities of race, class, and gender discrimination in twentieth-centu ry Canada. Agnew uses an integrated approach, adopting methodologies from political science, hiostory, sociology, and women's studies to investigate history and politics of Asian and black women throughout this century and the exclusion of these women from theory and practice of mainstream feminism.She also looks at the relationship between the state and community-based o rganizations of immigrant women, and the struggles of these women to provide social services to non-English-speaking working-class women through theircommunity-based organizations. Agnew's views are critical of white feminis t theories and practices. Her goal is to sensitize the reader to another perspective and to empower minority women by making them the subject of theirown recent history and politics. She seeks to open up the possibility of f uller cooperation among feminists across lines of race and class, and to suggest new lines of development for feminist theories and methodologies." - from the introductory blurb. Contents: 1. Introduction; 2. The Experience of Race and Gender Discrimination; 3. Race, Class, and Feminist Theory; 4. Race, Class, and Feminist Practice; 5. The Politics of Discourse; 6.

8 ANDERSON, Doris Rebel Daughter: An Autobiography. First Edition in dustjacket
Key Porter, Toronto, 1996, ISBN:1550137670 
ANDERSON, Doris. Rebel Daughter : An Autobiography. (Toronto) : Key Porter,(1996). First Printing. Pp 288 + plates. 8vo, black cloth. Doris Hilda And erson, (b. November 10, 1921 in Calgary - d. March 2, 2007, Toronto) . "As the editor of Chatelaine magazine from 1957 to 1977, Doris Anderson blazed a trail for Canadian women. Long before Betty Friedan's The Feminine Mystique was published, Anderson's editorials on abortion, women in the work force, child care, divorce settlements, custody arrangements, pay equity, and female sexual fulfilment challenged the prevailing social order and laid thefoundation for the feminist movement in Canada. [...] This fascinating and insightful autobiography describes that sometimes turbulent childhood in D epression-era Alberta and Anderson's years as a teacher in one-room schoolhouses. It follows her efforts to establish herself as a professional journalist in Toronto in the late 1940s, and records the frustrations and triumphs of an immensely capable woman coming up against a male-dominated journalistic establishment. [...] Finally, Rebel Daughter documents Anderson's timeas head of the Canadian Advisory Council on the Status of Women, when she led the fight that resulted in one simple statement being enshrined in the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms : men and women are equal under thelaw." - from the dj.

Rights formerly guaranteed by our 'welfare state' are disappearing. Social spending has been cut drastically in an attempt to combat recession, globalization and restructuring, and the deficit.The decline of the welfare state poses special risks for women. The policies, benefits, and services of the welfare state are directly linked to women's basic freedoms. The welfare state employs women to deliver services such as childcare, home-help, nursing, and social work. In turn, these services have meant that women can enter the paid labour force, provide for dependants, and leave abusive relationships. Access to political resources have helped women to form solidarities, alliances, and organizations. In Women and the Canadian Welfare State, scholars from environmental studies, law, social work, sociology, and economics explore the changing relationship between women and the welfare state. They examine the transformation of the welfare state and itsimplications for women; key issues in welfare state debates such as social rights, family and dependency, and gender-neutral programs and inequality; women's work and the state; and the role of women as agents of change.Wome n and the Canadian Welfare State explains not only how women are affected by changes in policy and programming, but how they can take an active role in shaping these changes. It bridges an important gap for scholars and students who are interested in gender, public policy, and the welfare state." Very good. 40.00

ANDREW, Joe. Women in Russian Literature, 1780-1863. New York : St. Martin's Press, (1988). First Printing. Pp. (6),vii,(1),1-201,(6). 8vo, red cloth with gilt lettering to spine. "This book is the first of its kind. Using the critical innovtions and revolutionary insights of Anglo-American and French feminist thinking, Joe Andrew seeks to offer radically new interpretations of the 'classics' of the golden age of Russian literature. Analysing themajor works of Pushkin, Gogol, Lermontov and Turgunev amongst others from these perspectives, the author is able to identify a tendency which, contrary to the myth of the 'strong woman' of Russian literature, usually marginalises women or openly denigrates them within the age-old misogynistic tradition of Western culture. Only with the 'new Eves' of Turgunev and Chrnyshevsky do Russian fictional women begin to escape the 'cages' or 'cellars' in which the almost exclusively male canon had confined them." - from the dustjacket.

Nimbus, Halifax, 2001, ISBN:1551092670 2001 1551092670 / 9781551092676 
BAIRD, Donal. Women at Sea in the Age of Sail. (Halifax, NS) : Nimbus Publishing, (2001). First Edition. Pp (6).[1]-226. Maps, nearly 50 b&w photos and other illustrations in the text. 8vo illustrated pale purple cardcovers, with photo on front.

Biographies of women from the Maritime Provinces of Canada who had significant experience of seafaring in the age of the merchant sailing ship. Women featured include Cora Hilton, Abigail Ryerson, Annie Cochrane, Glorana Fownes, Alice Coalfleet, Grace and Kay Ladd, and Amelia Holder.

"In the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, Cora Hilton and other Maritime women like her experienced firsthand the perils and pleasures of life at sea. These venturesome women went to sea largely to be with their captain husbands, and while some buckled under the pressures of solitude, boredom, bad weather, mutiny, and shipwreck, others rose to the challenge of living at sea, proving themselves useful time and again far beyond their roles as companions. On occasion, women with navigational skills - precursors to the professional seafaring women of the twentieth century - were called upon to bring the ship and its crew safely to port. Luckily for us, many of these seafaring women were faithful and sometimes gifted journal keepers. Author Donal Baird collects these writings and sets them against the backdrop of the halcyon days of the great square-riggers and their sad but inevitable decline. Here Cora Hilton, Abigail Ryerson, Annie Cochrane, Glorana Fownes, Alice Coalfleet, Grace and Kay Ladd, Amelia Holder and others recount, in their own words, their impressions of the exotic places they visited, the homes they made and the children they raised afloat on the seas, and how they survived it all, oftentimes as the only woman in a society of men." - from the rear cover.
