Description

Scratching the Surface: Canadian Anti-Racist Feminist Thought brings together 14 anti-racist feminists who examine ways in which race and gender interact to shape the lives of women of colour in Canada. This 1999 collection of articles covers a broad range of topics such as the impact of colonialism and its associated discourses on First Nations and other groups of colonized women; racism in the Canadian labour movement; the impact of globalization on women of colour; the ways in which the institution of the nuclear family shapes racism; sexism in communities of colour; and the ways in which the women's movement can create an anti-racist praxis. The book not only provides exciting new insights into how women of colour experience Canadian society, but also provides instructors with a textbook that integrates anti-racist and feminist approaches.
