Turbulent Times, Transformational Possibilities?: Gender and Politics Today and Tomorrow

Front Cover
Fiona MacDonald, Alexandra Dobrowolsky
University of Toronto Press, May 6, 2020 - Political Science - 432 pages
"In Canada, and elsewhere, recent political, economic, and social shifts have brought gender to the forefront of politics as never before, from gender-based analyses and "feminist budgets" to #Metoo, Idle No More, and Black Lives Matter movements. Detailing these gendered and turbulent political times, this book features diverse contributors' state-of-the art scholarship encompassing both contemporary challenges as well as avenues for change now and into the future. This collection provides a more complex treatment of both gender and politics: gender is examined in light of other collective identities and their intersections; and politics includes both the institutional political, as well as movement and countermovement politics."--
