1.2245 Immigration, Women, and Oppression in Canada.
This paper examines the reality of how migrant women's contribution to the survival of their family and community has not been recognized. The dominant culture has not valued domestic labour and communal work because it does not fall under the category of "economic development". Thus, women migrants work in the home and in the community help their families survive, but because of the sexist and classist lens through which elites have seen their own history, they are ignored by the "official" history of the country they live in. Moreover, they are already dealing with a disadvantage, since the society itself is misogynist and sexist. 11 pgs. 13 f/c. 13b.

3.2021 History Of Women In Canada: The Work Immigrant Women Performed: Race, Class, Ethnicity.
This paper will examine the work which immigrant women performed, in Canada. It will be shown that this general group of women held jobs which were either rejected by the dominant class, or were at least, jobs which they preferred not to do. The time period for this analysis is partly from the middle of the nineteenth century to about 1920. In addition, it includes much more recent information and reports on immigrant women taking up paid positions that the dominant class Canadian woman generally rejects. 8 pgs. 13 f/c. 8b.
