Description

Madeleine Parent's political activism has been a source of inspiration since her involvement in the textile strikes of the 1940s and 1950s. In this collection, Andree Levesque's team of writers brings to life Parent's battles as a feminist and a trade unionist, shedding light on the historical context of her work and her impact on Canadian history. Ten articles and a special portfolio of photographs explore the political struggles of this passionate Canadian artist.Born in 1918 in Montreal, Parent played a key role in the textile strikes in Quebec and in establishing Canadian unions. She has also been a champion of women's rights, active in campaigns for pay equity, for the right to abortion and for the rights of immigrant and Native women. An iconic figure in the history of Canadian political struggle, Parent has a fearless and continuing commitment to social and economic justice that continues to inspire.
