This paper examines Annis May Timpson's "Driven Apart: Women's Employment Equality and Child Care in Canadian Public Policy". The paper discusses how Timpson explores how the demands of the Canadian women's movement for greater employment equality in the last decades of the 20th century manifested themselves in public policy initiatives. The paper provides a review of Timpson's work from the point of view of the writer.
From the Paper:"This passage is important as it reveals how the development and implementation of public policy is shaped by political realities more so than ideological ones in the Canadian context. It is also interesting to note how MacDonald cites the need to gain the support of "women's groups" and not "women" in general in her observation. Clearly, she - and presumably her government - recognized the role of social organizations such as women's groups (what would today be termed "civil society" organizations) as participants in the shaping of public policy and, in a purely political way, in the aggregation of political support for a particular government."
