Neoliberalism, the ideology that seeks to reduce state intervention in the economy and society and advocates maximum scope for the free play of market forces, has profoundly changed Canada's political and public policy discourses over the past twenty-five years. Women and Public Policy in Canada is the groundbreaking collection by public policy scholars from across Canada that establishes an understanding of neoliberalism's impact on Canadian women and public policy and also builds a framework for theorizing future policy directions. Students will discover how a wide variety of public policy issues relate to gender in Canada through first-hand exposure to current policy research on topics such as child care, employment insurance programs, health care, climate change, race and inequality, anti-violence, and same-sex marriage. Students will also engage with the possibilities for inconsistencies and interruptions in neoliberalism, making this text an indispensable resource both for those requiring an up-to-date understanding of the topic and for current and future designers of public policy in Canada.
