Abstract:  The Women's Press is committed to bringing material of importance from the women's movement to the attention of Canadian readers. Since its inception 10 years ago, the collective has published 44 books, including works of adult fiction, theoretical essays, historical studies, and books for children.
The children's books published by the Press are non-sexist and relate to children's experiences as these are reflected in a variety of Canadian lifestyles and cultural and geographic setting. Good Times, Bad Times - Mommy and Me by Priscilla Galloway (illustrated by Lissa Calbert) describes the relationship between a child and her working mother from the child's perspective, and presents a picture of single parent families today. Overnight Adventure, by Frances Kilbourne (illustrated by Ann Powell) is a picture book for very young readers.
