Through Feminist Eyes
Essays on Canadian Women’s History
This is a passionate book by an author who has something to say and for whom history matters.
Joan Sangster’s work has always been ground-breaking, continually providing new perspectives on issues of women, gender, class, and race in diverse settings ... Through Feminist Eyes makes an important theoretical contribution to the field by gathering together some of Sangster’s key essays for the first time and offering her thoughtful commentary on her own intellectual trajectory.
Sangster raises questions about assumptions and norms that have shaped feminist historiography, making this a provocative and eloquent testimony about the importance of scrutinizing evidence and perspectives.
