This retrospective is not merely summative; the essays in this collection are analytical engagements with the current state of the field, which draw on its rich past to generate new knowledge and propose innovative avenues for inquiry. The dual purposes of this collection are to contemplate the field's past and to contribute productively to its future. These thirteen original essays are written by scholars at all career stages. The diversity of these authors' perspectives illustrates the contributions that Canadian scholarship has had in international dialogues about women's and gender history and that it continues to be a vibrant area of research. The collection includes chapters about the principal sub-fields in Canadian women's and gender history, including specialized chapters on Québecois, Indigenous, Black, and immigrant women's histories, religious history, labour history, war and society, history of sexuality, the history of reproductive labour and reproductive justice, two essays on the history of feminism that, taken together, cover the period from 1850 to the present, and a thematic essay on the colonial period."--"@en ;
