In this article, the writer reviews the book "Driven Apart: Women's Employment Equality and Child Care Policy in Canada" by Annis May Timpson. The writer discusses that the book 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.
From the Paper:"As this review will demonstrate, a key argument of the text is that while the 1967 Royal Commission on the Status of Women (RCSW) and the 1983 Royal Commission on Equality in Employment (RCEE) fundamentally transformed public policy with respect to the gendered nature of work in the federal policy arena, they also illustrate the challenges in policy development and implementation. This can be seen, the author contends, most notably in the reluctance of the successive federal governments to address the dual nature of both commissions' recommendations with respect to child care policy."
