Demanding Equality

One Hundred Years of Canadian Feminism

A new history of Canadian feminism.

Demanding Equality delves into the riches of Canadian feminism, beginning with nineteenth-century tracts and continuing beyond the recent intersectional turn. Challenging the popular “wave” theory of feminist history, Joan Sangster argues for the movement’s surprising continuity amid decades of social transformation. This comprehensive study promises to revitalize a wider public conversation about the diverse movement of Canadian feminism past, present, and future.
