Public Policy for Women: the State, Income Security, and Labour Market Issues

April 30, 2010

From the Publisher:

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.

Public Policy for Women: the State, Income Security, and Labour Market Issues, edited by Marjorie Griffin Cohen and Jane Pulkingham. Toronto : University of Toronto Press, 2009. 417 p.  ISBN 9780802095008 (pbk.)
