Making and Breaking the Rules
Women in Quebec, 1919-1939Book - 2010
During the interwar period, Quebec was a strongly patriachal society, where men in the Church, poltics, and medicine, maintained a traditional norm of social and sexual standards that women were expected to adide by. Some women in the media and religous communities were complicit with this vision, upholding the "ideal" as the norm and tending to those "deviants" who failed to meet society's expectations.
