Quebec Women: A History - Micheline Dumont, Clio Collective

If you are interested in Canada and history, you should read this book. The Clio Collective has constructed a book that details the life of women in Quebec, from before the colony to the late 70s, early 80s. (The book was published in the 1980s).

The Collective includes native and European women. I do wish there had been a bit more of contrast between the three groups - native, Franco, Anglo - women, but there is much to unpack here. I have long been interested in Marguerite Bourgeoys, and reading this puts the issues her order had with the various men in a totally different perspective.
