Book Description

March 21 2009 Studies in Comparative Political Economy and Public Policy (Book 32)

Containing essays from leading feminist academics, and social activists, Public Policy for Women addresses important public policy issues that fail to address women's needs. The volume's contributors pay particular attention to the relationship between the welfare state and vulnerable populations of women, while making substantial contributions to current public policy debates in Canada.

Focusing on discussions of controversial issues such as single working mothers, prostitution, mandatory retirement, guaranteed income, and work for welfare, these essays also consider the political and economic constraints that have been brought about by neo-liberal policy changes. Full of relevant policy critiques and original recommendations for improvement, Public Policy for Women readdresses often neglected subjects and concerns and makes informative appeals for public policy to address women's needs.

Product Description

Review

'Public Policy for Women in Canada is an extraordinarily important book documenting the massive policy changes that have occurred over the past thirty years in the Canadian welfare state. Its various case studies are careful and detailed but always remain tied to larger discussions of changing social, economic, and political contexts. Public Policy for Women in Canada is a collection that will immediately become a key text for students, teachers, and those working in the fields of politics, public policy, and women's studies.' (Meg Luxton, School of Women's Studies, York University)
