Abstract: This is the first convenient guide to Canadian laws that grant and protect rights and freedoms for women at work, within the family, and in the courts. In simple, non-legal language, illustrated with humorous cartoons, this book gives authoritative answers to a host of questions: "What should I do in the case of abuse, sexual harassment, or racial discrimination? What are my rights to child custody and property in the event of separation or divorce from my spouse? How do equality rights affect my job? What are my political rights as an immigrant or refugee? Where can I turn for help?" It includes a directory of Canadian human rights commissions and women's associations as well as copies of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
