Willeen Keough & Lara Campbell

Toronto: Oxford University Press, 2013

Seamlessly integrating primary and secondary sources with insightful original overviews, Gender History: Canadian Perspectives is a comprehensive resource for students of gender history in Canada. This reader-textbook takes and innovative historical and thematic approach - the first half is chronological in structure, tracing developments from the pre-contacts such as work, the law, sexuality, religion, and popular culture. The result is a solid introduction to the broad patterns and themes of gender history in Canada, with particular emphasis on the diversity of gender experiences and the intersections of gender with class and race.
