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.
