An Overview of Women Students in the Postsecondary System in Canada (1982)

In spite of the advanced education levels of Canadian women, they still, on average, only earn 60% of what men earn and most of the 40% differential cannot be accounted for by differences in seniority, experience or qualifications. It can only be accounted for then, by systemic sex discrimination, which creates occupational segregation and pays women less for work that is of equal value to that done by men.

Listen to Women in Literacy (1994)

This book explains research done by CCLOW to find out what happened when women in literacy programs decided to do something they thought would be positive for women.
