A Woman's Place
Seventy Years in the Lives of Canadian WomenBook - 1997
From the days of conservatism and corsets to the era of liberalism and liposuction, Canadian women have turned to Chatelaine for information and inspiration. In words and pictures culled from the magazine's pages, A Woman's Place records the female journey from tradition-bound helpmate to no-holds-barred heroine of her own life. Featuring more than 140 black and white images, three colour sections and hundreds of articles by a virtual who's who of Canadian writing such as Barbara Amiel, June Callwood, Marian Engel, Robert Fulford, Michelle Landsberg, Phil Marchand, Nellie McClung and Beverley Slopen, A Woman's Place ranges from the bedroom to the boardroom in a one of a kind social history. It reveals who we were and who we have become.
