Description

Enough is Enough: Aboriginal Women Speak Out explains the role of the women from Tobique First Nations who worked to changed the Indian Act as it related to marriage to a non-Indian man. They provide their personal stories in the first half of the book. The second half provides a more detailed account of the changes made to the Indian Act and the political advocacy necessary to bring forward Bill C-31. Bill C-31 amended the Indian Act and ended over 100 years of legislated sexual discrimination against First Nations women who married non-status men. The personal accounts of these New Brunswick women are powerful and contain themes that reference alcohol abuse, infidelity, physical abuse and death. Enough is Enough: Aboriginal Women Speak Out is an authorized student support resource for Alberta Education grades 10 to 12 courses.
