Book - 1987
Rate this:
Although she is popularly remembered as Ottawa's pugnacious major,there are other important reasons for remembering Charlotte Whitton.One of this country's first generation of professional women, shechampioned the cause of child welfare across the country and workedhard for the status of women long before the word 'feminism'had passed into everyday language. What the authors show, however, inthis biography is that Whitton does not fit comfortably intocontemporary notions of the liberated woman. In spite of herprogressive attitudes, she was also capable of vindictiveness,intolerance, and contempt for the 'undeserving.'
