Discussions of women's politics often treat feminist theory, the women's movement, and public policy-making as separate entities. In this text, Jacquetta Newman and Linda White argue that the three are closely entwined, and that understanding the intersections between them is essential to understanding women and politics in Canada. Women, Politics, and Public Policy explores how Canadian women's struggles against gender bias and oppression relate to political action, public policy change, and the women's movement as a whole. Designed as a core text for first-and second-year students of political science and women's studies, it is equally relevant to disciplines such as sociology, history, law, and social work, and will also be an invaluable reference source for more advanced studies.

There is a tendency in discussions of women's politics to look at feminist theory, the women's movement, and public policy-making as three distinct phenomena. This work shows how these areas intersect. It does so by exploring how Canadian women have engaged in, and are engaging in, struggles against gender bias and oppression, and how this engagement relates to political action, public policy change, and the women's movement.
