The Ontario and Toronto Coalitions for Better Child Care announce the publication of their new joint book, "Woman power and politics". This guide for women on identifying and maximizing power in today's political systems looks through the lens of child care as it influences women's lives. Woman power and politics invites women to participate in politics, take opportunities and determine their future regarding areas such as education, poverty and domestic violence. This book answers many of the questions about how government works. It guides women on getting or staying involved, and on understanding just where in our political systems women can maximize their power. It also reviews options for democratic reform that would provide women with more access to political power and defines different forms of advocacy, including a feminist approach to organizing.
