From the end of the nineteenth century to the middle of the twentieth, newspapers were the pre-eminent source of information for Canadians. While the dominent voice of the press was male, a diverse and dispersed group of women sought and won access to this powerful domain. Most were confined to writing about "women's interests - homemaking, fashion, and high society - but a few broke through the barriers and won renownin male-dominated fields. And those who remained in the "Women's Section, " chronicled the increasing participation of women in public affairs and social reform, doing much to advance the role of women in society. ; 371 pages
