Where Are the Women? Gender Equity, Budgets and Canadian Public Policy
Authors: Janine Brodie and Isabella Bakker
Publisher: Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives, Ottawa, 2008

Contemporary Canadian fiscal and social policy reforms have been accompanied by the progressive disappearance of the gendered subject, both in discourse and practice. Indeed, the minority Conservative government of Stephen Harper has gone so far as to declare that the goal of gender equity has been achieved in Canada. However, as Brodie and Bakker argue in Where are the Women? not only has the goal of gender equality not been met but the relentless attack on federal social programs over the past decade has actually undermined gender equity, as well as the well-being of Canadian women, especially the most vulnerable.
