Patricia Elliot. "Some Critical Reflections on the Transgender Theory of Kate Bornstein." Atlantis, vol. 23, no. 1 (Fall/Winter 1998), pp. 13-19.

This article critically engages aspects of Kate Bornstein's transgender theory as found in Gender Outlaw. Drawing on recent work in Lacanian psychoanalysis, and on insights from Bornstein's account, Elliot poses questions about the ways in which sex, gender, desire, and subjectivity are theorized. (Journal abstract)

Tania Trepenier. "Valuing Narratives of Hybridity and Multiplicity." Atlantis, vol. 23, no. 1 (Fall/Winter 1998), pp. 20-29.

By providing parallel critiques of US Third World feminism and radical lesbian feminism from the perspective of bisexual feminists and feminists of mixed race, ethnicity, and culture, the author argues that theories concerned with power, privilege, and social change would benefit from a valuation of narratives of hybridity and multiplicity. (Journal abstract)

Christine Overall. "`Peep Shows and Bedroom Access': Women's Identities and the Practice of Outing." Atlantis, vol. 23, no. 1 (Fall/Winter 1998), pp. 30-37.

"Passing" may be defined as the concealment of a stigmatized identity, often through the assumption of a counterpart non-stigmatized identity. "Outing" is the practice of revealing the passing of persons with stigmatized identities. Focussing on a variety of stigmatized identities usually or invariably possessed by and/or attributed to women, the author raises moral questions about the practice of outing by means of an ontological and epistemological critique of some of the assumptions on which outing is based. (Journal abstract)

Cynthia Mathieson and Lynda Endicott. "Lesbian and Bisexual Identity: Discourse of Difference." Atlantis, vol. 23, no. 1 (Fall/Winter 1998), pp. 38-47.

How does a lesbian or bisexual woman construct her identity? The authors examine this question through a discourse analysis of 20 interviews with lesbian and bisexual women. They theorize about the discursive production of identities using three broad classifications of discourse: "Labelling," "Coming Out," and "Building and Sustaining Identity." (Journal abstract)

Becki Ross. "`Down At the Wherehouse?': Reflections on Christian Community Service and Female Sex Deviance at Toronto's Street Haven, 1965-1969." Atlantis, vol. 23, no. 1 (Fall/Winter 1998), pp. 48-59.

This paper focusses on Street Haven, a drop-in centre that opened in Toronto, Ontario in 1965 to service female ex-offenders and street women, the majority of whom were lesbians, drug users, and prostitutes. Interviews and archival materials reveal how white, middle-class Haven volunteers endeavoured to improve the lives of "the girls" in the interests of "normal" womanhood. At the same time, stories told by volunteers complicate notions of societal norms unilaterally imposed by Christian "do-gooders" on "deviant" subjects. (Journal abstract)

Pamela J. Downe. "Selling Sex, Studying Sexuality: Voices of Costs Rican Prostitutes and Visions of Feminists." Atlantis, vol. 23, no. 1 (Fall/Winter 1998), pp. 60-68.

This paper explores the images of disembodiment and disengagement put forth in feminist representations of prostitution and prostitutes and contrasts them to the embodied and engaged experiences of 53 street prostitutes in San Jose, Costa Rica. The importance of focussing on the global as well as local context is emphasized. (Journal abstract)

Caroline Fusco. "Setting the Record Straight: The Experiences of Lesbian Athletes," Atlantis, vol. 23, no. 1 (Fall/Winter 1998), pp. 69-79.

In her master's thesis, "Lesbians and Locker Rooms," Caroline Fusco interviewed eight lesbian athletes and concluded that lesbian realities in sport can be connected to a larger set of practices which assist in the construction of a heteronormative order. In this paper she has reinterpreted previous interview material in order to examine the performances of both (homo/hetero)sexual identities in their sports in relation to this heteronormative order. (Journal abstract)

Susan Heald. "Sex And Pleasure, Art And Politics, and Trying To Get Some Rest: An Interview with Shawna Dempsey and Lorri Millan, Performance Artists," Atlantis, vol. 23, no. 1 (Fall/Winter 1998), pp. 80-90.

In this interview, Winnipeg, Manitoba-based performance artists, Shawna Dempsey and Lorri Millan discuss "Sexualities and Feminisms" with interviewer Susan Heald. "In many ways [Dempsey and Millan] appear to be asking the same kinds of questions -- though very differently -- that feminist scholars are asking. Making art about feminist politics, about sex and pleasure and marginalization is, as they say, a political project." (ns)

Pauline Greenhill. "Lesbian Mess(ages): Decoding Shawna Dempsey's Cake Squish at the Festival Du Voyeur," Atlantis, vol. 23, no. 1 (Fall/Winter 1998), pp. 91-99.

Shawna Dempsey and Lorri Millan's performance piece "Mary Medusa" is explored as an example of how artistic lesbian mess(ages) can be decoded by viewers. Focussing upon anthropological, feminist and queer theory, Green-hill examines how both "Mary Medusa" and its decodings implicate women, sex, power and food. (Journal abstract)

Rob K. Baum. "Accessory to Murder: A Lesbian Masquerade," Atlantis, vol. 23, no. 1 (Fall/Winter 1998), pp. 100-110.

Mabel Maney parodies Fifties-era "girl detective" Nancy Drew with lesbian Nancy Clue, mocking the original series' insistence upon heteronormativity while maintaining Keene's luxuriously white, upper-class sanctity. This article explores Maney's comic structure from Freudian "dress-up" and professional disguise to lesbian masquerade, demonstrating their ideological difference from gay camp -- one queer commentary has repeatedly confused. Maney's conflation of the disparate motives of lesbian masquerade and gay camp lead to her abandonment of lesbian feminist readers. (Journal abstract)

Chris Fox. "Murder at the Red Arrow Motel: Nicole Brossard's Mauve Desert as Dystopic Mystery," Atlantis, vol. 23, no. 1 (Fall/Winter 1998), pp. 112-119.

In Mauve Desert, a novel of two fictions, that of the translation itself and the narrative that forms the content to be translated, Nicole Brossard makes creative and minimal use of elements of the mystery novel genre to evoke an intellectual curiosity and emotional desire for understanding in readers. Brossard seduces readers into an investigative role by means of the post-modern complexities and opportunities of the metatranslational narrative and the gaps she leaves in the traditional mystery genre. (Journal abstract)

Jill Ehnenn. "Desperately Seeking Susan Among the Trash: Reinscription, Subversion and Visibility In the Lesbian Romance Novel," Atlantis, vol. 23, no. 1 (Fall/Winter 1998), pp. 120-127.

This article begins to examine the practice of reading the lesbian romance novel through surveys and interviews of selected readers, booksellers and publishers. Findings suggest that while the notion of escape similarly motivates both straight and lesbian romance readers, the psychological effects upon those readers differ significantly. Ultimately, this article acknowledges that producers and consumers look to lesbian romances to counter the often invisible status of gay life in today's world. (Journal abstract)

Kathryn Campbell. "`Deviance, Inversion and Unnatural Love': Lesbians in Canadian Media, 1950-1970," Atlantis, vol. 23, no. 1 (Fall/Winter 1998), pp. 128-136.

This article examines the representation of lesbians in English Canadian print media in the 1950s and 1960s. The author discusses the increase in media attention towards homosexuality in the 1950s, and explores the portrayal of lesbians in these early articles in relation to the prevailing gender ideologies of the period. (Journal abstract)

Jyanni Steffensen. "Epistemological Sadism: Queering the Phalius in Monica Treut's Seduction," Atlantis, vol. 23, no. 1 (Fall/Winter 1998), pp. 137-145.

This article is a queer analysis of German filmmaker Monica Treut's Seduction: The Cruel Woman. This reading simultaneously reworks some of the Freudian and Lacanian psychoanalytic narratives of the subject and desire which have been problematic for feminism and lesbian feminism. (Journal abstract)

Michelle Mawhinney. "Rethinking Desire: The Ontology of Lack and the Edible Other," Atlantis, vol. 23, no. 1 (Fall/Winter 1998), pp. 147-156.

This article engages with Elizabeth Grosz's critique of the conception of desire thought in terms of "lack," and argues that rather than rejecting this concept, it is necessary to disengage it from its historical association with the denigration of the female other and the ontologization of desire itself. (Journal abstract)

Mary Jane Mossman. "Feminism and the Law: Challenges and Choices." Canadian Journal of Women and the Law, vol. 10, no. 1 (1998), pp. 1-16.

In this lecture in honour of late Professor Marlene Cano (former French language co-editor of the Canadian Journal of Women and the Law), the author examines the challenges and choices that confront feminism and the law in three cases that concern women's roles as mothers: Bliss, Brooks and Symes. Although the cases were decided over a period of nearly 15 years and in very different legal contexts, the author argues that all three cases illustrate similar problems and reveal the limitations of law's response to feminist challenges. This conclusion indicates that feminist law teachers also face challenges and choices in teaching cases about women's claims. The author concludes with some suggestions for feminist law teachers based on the inspiration provided by Professor Carlo in relation to these challenges and choices. (Journal abstract)

Radha Jhappan. "The Equality Pit or the Rehabilitation of Justice." Canadian Journal of Women and the Law, vol. 10, no. 1 (1998), pp. 60-107.

This article examines the litigation strategies pursued by feminist lawyers and activists in Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms cases, focussing on the core discourse and objective in the feminist legal project -- equality rights. It analyzes some of the key problems of the equality approach, including the sameness/difference dichotomy and those problems revealed by critical race theory, in particular, deconstructions of antidiscrimination laws by Black feminists and women of colour. These problems, in the author's view, point to the impossibility of equality both as a theoretical and as a practical enterprise for women, people of colour, and other subjugated collectivities. Although the Women's Legal Education and Action Fund (LEAF) has offered a creative, contextualized, and substantive model of equality that has enjoyed some success before the courts, this model seems unable ultimately to resist the forced essentialism and assimilationist logic of the equality concept. The author, therefore, suggests that feminist litigators consider the strategic potential of an alternative approach -- justice -- and demonstrates how it can avoid some of the pitfalls of the equality framework. (Journal abstract)

Donna Hackett. "Finding and Following `The Road Less Travelled': Judicial Neutrality and the Protection and Enforcement of Equality Rights in Criminal Trial Courts." Canadian Journal of Women and the Law, vol. 10, no. 1 (1998), pp. 129-148.

The Honourable Judge Donna Hackett examines the judicial role in protecting and enforcing equality rights enshrined in the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. In her experience, counsel do not raise equality rights issues in criminal trial courts. As a result, judges must be particularly diligent in identifying equality issues and take what she refers to as "the road less travelled" by raising equality issues that are not identified by counsel. She describes equality issues which were identified by herself and other judges but which were not raised by counsel, such as: evidence of prior sexual activity of a complainant of sexual assault; trial delays that limit access to justice by persons with disabilities; difficulties with language; problems of translation; diverse cultural and religious practices; and the form of the oath. Judicial impartiality requires that judges recognize and integrate equality rights into the interpretation and application of the law. In order to do so, judges must be familiar with the rights and problems of the disadvantaged and all communities within their jurisdictions. (Journal abstract)

Erin Soros. "The Law of Generation: The Ethics of Abortion." Canadian Journal of Women and the Law, vol. 10, no. 1 (1996), pp. 149-158.

On the tenth anniversary of the 1988 Morgentaler decision, a woman's right to an abortion in Canada remains under siege, with access to the procedure uneven across the country and, as yet, unavailable in the province of Prince Edward Island. Despite the introduction of "bubble zones" that prevent pro-life demonstrators from directly reaching those individuals who use reproductive health centres, women choosing to have an abortion can still endure public or private harassment and the providers of this essential medical service can face threats to their lives. Abortion has been condemned as an act of murder yet also advocated as the articulation of a woman's control over her own body. In upholding the right to have an abortion, the author does not directly engage the debate between pro-life and pro-choice activists but instead examines some of the narrative about the decision to terminate a pregnancy and working both with, and against, Jacques Derrida's exploration of early Judeo-Christian moral law in The Gift of Death, she argues that abortion cannot be conceived within a male model of identity, responsibility, and morality. A fetus is neither self nor other. Its loss is, and is not, a death. An abortion is a liminal act that ruptures the ground of ethics itself. (Journal abstract)

Gabrielle St-Hilaire. Fange legislative : La deduction des frais de garde d'enfants a l'article 63 de la Loi de l'impot sur le revenu. Revue Femmes et Droit, vol. 10, no 1 (1998), p. 17-59.

Le regime fiscal assure en grande partie l'appui financier aux parents en matiere de frais de garde d'enfants. Ce moyen a donne lieu a une polemique concernant sa capacite et son efficacite a repondre aux besoins des parents, plus particulierement des femmes. L'auteure souscrit a la these selon laquelle le regime fiscal, plus specifiquement l'article 63 de la Loi de l'impot sur le revenu peut jouer un role sans que cela nuise a l'elaboration d'une politique nationale en matiere de garde d'enfants. L'auteure note la desesperante lenteur des gouvernements. Utilisant les affaires Symes et Thibodeau, elle fait ressortir l'importance des contestations constitutionnelles sur la scene politique, malgre l'impuissance du systeme judiciaire a corriger certaines iniquites.

Andree Cote. Pour les damnees de la terre : l'education populaire juridique sur les droits des femmes. Revue Femmes et Droit, vol. 10, no 1 (1998), p. 108-128.

Malgre le fait que l'education juridique soit un gage de la democratie effective, la majorite des femmes connaissent peu ou pas leurs droits. S'il existe une plethore de documents de vulgarisation et d'information juridiques, la litterature semble avoir porte peu d'attention a l'education juridique populaire, en particulier celle portant sur les droits des femmes. L'auteure se propose ici de degager certaines balises theoriques et methodologiques pour un tel programme, soulignant que l'education juridique populaire sur les droits des femmes doit concevoir le droit dans son evolution historique, dans son contexte social et politique, comme un instrument souvent manipule par un groupe social en vue de promouvoir ses propres interets, et qui doit faire l'objet de contestations judiciaires et de mobilisations politiques destinees a le transformer. Par la suite elle fait etat d'un projet developpe pour la Table feministe francophone de concertation provinciale de l'Ontario intitule Les Franco-ontariennes et les droits a l'egalite. Le modele est structure en trois temps : la formation, la consultation et la concertation. Il s'agit d'un modele dynamique qui participe au mouvement progressif pour la realisation effective des droits humains des femmes. (resume de la redaction)

Francoise Digneffe et Colette Parent. La mediation peut-elle devenir une ressource pour les conjointes victimes de violance? Revue Femmes et Droit, vol. 10, no 2 (1998), p. 293-305.

Les auteures examinent l'epineuse question du recours a la mediation comme mesure dans les dossiers de violence contre les conjointes. Elles presentent d'abord les principales critiques feministes face a la mediation comme reponse a des litiges qui impliquent de la violence contre les conjointes. Elles resituent ensuite la mediation comme mesure dans le contexte de nos societes contemporaines afin d'en degager l'interet et les derives possibles; elles evaluent alors dans quelle mesure les critiques feministes touchent a des elements majeurs de cette mesure telle que concue dans nos societes modernes ou encore a des modalites de mise en ouvre. Elles tentent enfin d'exposer jusqu'ou et a quelles conditions la mediation peut etre pensee comme une mesure parmi d'autres mis a la disposition des femmes victimes de la violence de la part de leur conjoint.

Dorothy E. Chunn and Robert Menzies. "Out of Mind, Out of Law: The Regulation of `Criminally Insane': Women inside British Columbia's Public Mental Hospitals, 1888-1973." Canadian Journal of Women and the Law, vol. 10, no. 2 (1998), pp. 306-337.

This article examines the institutional experiences of the first 38 women in British Columbia to be transferred from judicial to psychiatric settings and confined indeterminately under executive "Orders-in-Council." Using archival documents and historical psychiatric files, the authors chart the constructions of criminality and disorder that shaped the medico-legal careers of these female forensic patients. Building on the insights of feminists writing about carceral and therapeutic modes of discipline in both historical and contemporary contexts, they explore the professional discourses and organizational activities that were marshalled to normalize these polymorphously deviant women. The work of penal and "psi" professionals was immersed in myriad gendered understandings about the character of femininity and motherhood, the moral and constitutional failings of transgressive women, and the peculiar social risks that these patients posed. Still, these psychiatric practices were by no means omnipotent. Women subjects and their allies frequently resisted, and sometimes overcame, the interventions of medical authorities. The prevailing relations of regulation in these psycho-legal contexts were therefore contradictory, conflictual, disorderly, and incomplete. The ordering of "criminally insane" women was continuously being (re)negotiated across the hierarchical structures of gender, race, and class and through the interwoven power-knowledge systems and languages of science and law. (Journal abstract)

Razack, Sherene. "Race, Space, and Prostitution: The Making of the Bourgeois Subject." Canadian Journal of Women and the Law, vol. 10, no. 2 (1998), pp. 338-376.

This article begins with the contention that prostitution secures a hegemonic masculinity constituted by interlocking relations of class, race, and gender. It is therefore as vital to white supremacy and capitalism as it is to patriarchy. Asking "how do modern capitalism, sexism, and racism simultaneously contribute to the production of women who sell their bodies, to men who buy these bodies, and to the tremendous violence of these practices?", the author attends to this simultaneity through an analysis of spatial configurations. She begins with a brief review of feminist views on prostitution, arguing that many feminists, whether they theorize prostitution as work or violence or both, consider prostitution as being centrally about gender relations. Drawing on theorists who examine the spatiality of social relations, the author offers an alternative analysis, one that makes the argument that prostitution in liberal democratic nation states establishes zones of degeneracy (and bodies marked as degenerate), into which bourgeois subjects can briefly journey and then return to respectability. She applies her methodological framework to European nineteenth-century urban spaces and concludes with reflections on how the framework could be applied to twentieth-century spaces of prostitution in Asia and North America. (Journal abstract)

Chantal Lavergne. Analyse du processus de construction de la violence faite aux femmes en contexte conjugal comme probleme socio-penal au Quebec. Revue Femmes et Droit, vol. 10, no 2 (1998), p. 377-400.

L'etude porte sur l'analyse du processus de construction de la violence faite aux femmes comme probleme socio-penal au Quebec. L'objectif est d'etudier les circonstances entourant l'emergence de cette question comme probleme social et la maniere dont la definition et les solutions ont evolue au cours du processus. Les resultats de l'etude montrent que le discours feministe des groupes de femmes, dans lequel la violence faite aux femmes est definie comme un probleme d'inegalite entre les sexes, n'est pas conteste par ceux et celles qui ont pris part au processus definitionnel. C'est davantage au niveau des solutions et des actions preconisees que l'on observe des differences dans le discours. L'ecart entre le discours sur le probleme et les solutions privilegiees est particulierement frappant a partir du moment ou le processus se transporte sur le terrain de l'Etat; le discours demeure sans en tenir compte dans les solutions preconisees. Dans cette perspective, des actions visant a ameliorer les conditoins de vie des femmes et a remettre en cause les privileges masculins ne sont pas pris en compte dans le plan d'action propose. La reponse gouvernementale consiste plutot a privilegier des solutions qui ne necessitent pas de reamenagements majeurs dans les dispositifs de resolution des problemes existants et qui n'entrainent pas de remise en cause du statu quo. Les resultats d'une comparaison entre le processus au Quebec et celui qui s'est developpe au Canada anglais et aux Etats-Unis sont egalement presentes dans le but de faire ressortir ce que le processus de construction au Quebec a de particulier ou de different.

Margaret Thornton with the assistance of Weiping Wang. "Sexing Modernity: Women in the Chinese Legal Academy." Canadian Journal of Women and the Law, vol. 10, no. 2 (1968), pp. 401-437.

This article focusses on women in the Chinese legal academy and their changing subjectivity arising from the impact of the free market. It considers their double identity as they are caught between tradition and modernization. It examines their imaginative language, in conjunction with their stories, which has been structured by both history and culture in complex ways and which continually infuses new meanings into everyday life. Through the analysis of these stories, the article seeks to highlight the sexed nature of the legal academy in the light of the social scripts of femininity and modernity. The author begins by addressing the methodological perplexities confronting Western feminist researchers in writing across cultures. She then considers the lure of the free market following protracted experience of a controlled economy. Against this backdrop, Thornton considers how modernization has destabilized the academy in so far as both the law curriculum and the position of academics is concerned, particularly because of the desire of the latter to "go out to sea." The article then focuses more closely on the contradictions that beset women in the everyday practices of the legal academy. The author argues that the academy is a site where women are actively constituted as "other" to the masculinist norm. Since the feminine is viewed as a dangerous force in the public sphere in China, as in the West, it is shown that there is resistance to women occupying authoritative and independent positions. Finally, the author argues that the intersection of market and family relations with academic and bureaucratic prescripts has contributed to the normalization and reconfiguration of a (hetero)sexed binarism, albeit one that is friable at the edges.

S. Craig Wilson. "`Our Common Enemy': Censorship Campaigns of the Women's Christian Temperance Union and the National Council of Women in Canada, 1890-1914." Canadian Journal of Women and the Law, vol. 10, no. 2 (1998). pp. 436-479.

This article argues that the campaigns against "immoral" and "obscene" literature initiated in the 1890s by the Women's Christian Temperance Union (WCTU) and the National Council of Women of Canada CNCWC) were integral to feminist reformers' broader project of moral regeneration and nation-building. Underlying these efforts was a widespread anxiety about the survival of an idealized family structure and a discourse that relied heavily on the moral "innocence" of children and their vulnerability to delinquency and moral corruption through exposure to impure printed materials. These rhetorical devices provided the impetus for a moral crusade advocating the suppression of reading materials intended for both children and adults, ranging from crime-story newspapers and "sensation" novels to works of contemporary fiction. The article also examines several formal and informal strategies adopted by the WCTU and the NCWC -- in cooperation with other social purity groups -- to combat immoral literature, including the promotion of "pure" literature and women's cultural literacy, and their efforts to employ the apparatus of the state and secure legislative reform. It concludes that these censorship initiatives, while allowing women reformers to repudiate conventional notions of feminine passivity, also rendered manifest some of the most coercive aspects of the early women's movement while reinforcing the prevailing values of English-Canadian society.

Amanda Glasbeek. "Maternalism Meets the Criminal Law: The Case of the Toronto Women's Court." Canadian Journal of Women and the Law, vol. 10, no. 2 (1998), pp. 480-502.

The Toronto Women's Court, established in 1913 as a maternal feminist response to an androcentric criminal justice system, is revealing of elements of first-wave feminism and the politics of familialism. The Toronto Women's Court was justified through a rhetoric of familialism and organized on the model of the family. This familialism, however, worked to mask, and make possible, coercive class relations that were expressed, instead, as a politics of gender. In place of paternalist justice, white middle-class feminists succeeded in legitimating maternalist family values within the criminal justice system, thus both increasing their class authority over wayward "girls" and enveloping them within the coercive project of the law.

"While women have made progress towards equal status, this progress has stalled. Some would say that we have been slipping backwards over the last few years." By focussing on the fallout for women and any person "not currently in a position of authority and power" since the beginning of Mike Harris's Conservative government in Ontario in June 1995, the author identifies the effects of the cuts made by this government and turns to history to answer the question: "How did we get to this point?"

Nicole Mosconi. Reussite scolaire des filles et des garcons et socialisation differentielle des sexes a l'ecole. Recherches feministes, vol. 11, no 1, 1998, p. 7-17.

Cette note de recherche presente une critique des explications ordinairement donnees quant a la reussite scolaire des filles, en montrant leur caractere fortement stereotype. Elle propose une explication en fait de strategies et d'attitudes face a l'ecole, au personnel enseignant et aux autres eleves. L'auteure illustre cette proposition par l'analyse qualitative d'une sequence de mathematiques a l'ecole primaire qui montre l'inegalite traitement des filles et des garcons par l'enseignante, mais aussi des differences de positionnement des eleves selon leur sexe et leur origine sociale.

Suite a une enquete par questionnaire aupres de plus de 2 200 filles et garcons quebecois ages de 15 ans, l'article presente un profil de certaines composantes de la masculinite chez le groupe de garcons. Pour ce faire, les reponses des garcons a chacune des questions sont comparees systematiquement a celles des filles. Ensuite, un deuxieme profil de la masculinite est construit a partir, cette fois, des positions adoptees par une majorite de garcons, sans tenir compte des reponses donnees par les filles. Les resultats issus des deux methodes d'analyse sont ensuite compares. Sur le plan des rapports sociaux de sexe, la synthese montre que ce sont plutot les filles qui sont porteuses de changement social, autant pour elles-memes que pour les garcons qu'elles cotoient. Ces derniers restent pres d'une definition plus conformiste de l'identite masculine, mais certains indices d'evolution de leurs representations peuvent etre lies aux actions du mouvement des femmes.

Cet article se penche sur les attitudes des femmes qui enseignent en etudes sur les femmes envers les hommes qui enseignent dans le meme domaine et compare ces attitudes avec celles que les hommes ont d'eux-memes. La position preponderante reflete une profonde ambivalence. D'un cote, ces hommes sont percus comme des collegues indispensables ou, du moins, en principe souhaitables; de l'autre, on considere qu'ils se trouvent dans une situation paradoxale, leur presence dans une position d'autorite contredisant le message et l'objectif du cours. La demonstration presente cette ambivalence comme preferable a une acceptation inconditionnelle ou un rejet complet de leur place en etudes sur les femmes. (resume de la redaction)

A travers quelques elements historiques lies au champ des etudes sur les hommes, et a partir des travaux de recherche realises par l'auteur au cours de ces dix dernieres annees, l'article interroge les cadres problematique et methodologique qui nous permettent de realiser des etudes dans des equipes mixtes en hommes et femmes, tout en questionnant l'androcentrisme et de la sociologie, et des sociologues eux-memes. Dans une premiere partie sont analyses les processus, parfois compliques, par lesquels ont emerge en France des travaux profeministes. Puis, a partir du constat de la frequente asymetrie des objets traites par les hommes profeministes et par les femmes sociologues feministes, et des questions qui traversent le champ des rapports sociaux de sexe en construction, l'article propose une discussion sur la methode. Plus exactement, a travers l'exemple d'une recherche recente sur l'echangisme, l'auteur, qui se reclame de l'antisexisme, expose ses propres difficultes concretes rencontrees sur le terrain de recherche pour ne plus etre pris dans l'androcentrisme, et accepter, valider et en definitive integrer les vecus et analyses critiques proposes par ses collegues, femmes et feministes. En conclusion, l'article identifie les outils et les principes methodologiques qui permettraient de mettre en place des debats prenant en compte la problematique des rapports sociaux de sexe dans les equipes mixtes d'hommes et de femmes.

La place du feminisme dans un magazine quebecois a grand tirage, L'actualite, a ete examinee durant la periode 1960-1996. L'analyse d'un corpus de 118 textes, articles et chroniques, a demontre que le discours sur le feminisme a peu change durant plus de trois decennies et qu'il reproduit certaines caracteristiques liees a la conception patriarcale de l'ordre social. En effet, les medias de masse participent a l'ambivalence du processus de modernisation de nos societes et un magazine a grand tirage s'inscrit dans un contexte sociopolitique qui concede peu de place a la contestation sociale. On a pu etablir deux demonstrations : d'abord que la portee politique du mouvement feministe a ete occultee et niee, comme si les femmes ne pouvaient etre sujets de l'histoire; d'autre part, qu'un mecanisme de resistance a ete mis en place par la presence, dans le magazine, d'une ambiguite qui se manifeste par la juxtaposiuon de textes a saveur feministe et de textes a saveur sexiste. On assiste a une volonte evidente d'occulter le mouvement feministe et son role dans la societe quebecoise. Tout en pretendant a un objectivite journalistique, les medias nous presentent plutot une version de la subjectivite masculine. (resume de la redaction)

Cette forme subtile de violence conjugale a fait l'objet de quelques etudes par le passe, principalement quantitatives. Plusieurs chercheurs et chercheures ont en effet tente de mesurer le concept et d'en degager l'incidence. Dans le present article, l'auteure et l'auteur retournent a un niveau de conceptualisation prealable et tentent de cerner sur un plan plus global le processus et les constitutantes de cette forme de violence. Dans un premier temps, une revue des definitions de la violence psychologique tirees de recherches anterieures est presentee. Apres un expose des principaux aspects methodologiques, une analyse des entrevues realisees est articulee autour des trois constituantes d'une representation sociale, en situant pour chacune d'elles les dispositions particulieres caracterisant les repondantes et les repondants. A partir du materiel recueilli, une definition de la violence psychologique est ensuite proposee et l'article conclut en precisant l'eclaircissement conceptuel que permet cette definition.

Cet article a pour objet l'etude, en tant que mouvement social sexue, du mouvement des chomeurs et des chomeuses qui s'est developpe en France au cours de l'hiver 1998. Apres avoir revisite une certaine sociologie des mouvements sociaux au nom de la transversalite des rapports sociaux -- et plus specifiquement des rapports sociaux de sexe --, l'auteur rend compte de son observation participante au mouvement des chomeurs et des chomeuses de Morlaix (Bretagne). Il analyse la sous-representation des chomeuses dans celui-ci et la sexuation des comportements au sein des assemblees generales. Il s'interroge sur les liens entre rapports sociaux de sexe et structure, revendications et modes d'action du mouvement. Puis il examine l'hypothese de la haine de genre a partir de ce mouvement social. La pregnance de la domination masculine et les comportements patriarcaux ne doivent-ils par etre consideres comme des facteurs explicatifs centraux de la progressive demobilisation des participantes et participants a un mouvement social?

Claudette Gagnon. La dynamique de la reussite scolaire des filles au primaire: les motivations et les enjeux des rapports sociaux de sexe. Recherches feministes, vol. 12, no 1, 1998, p. 19-45.

Cet article porte sur le phenomene de la meilleure reussite scolaire des filles des le primaire. L'auteure cherche a comprendre pourquoi les filles reussissent mieux que les garcons, ont moins d'echecs, de retard et de redoublement scolaires. L'objectif est de decrire et d'analyser les mobilisations et les motivations des filles quant a la reussite scolaire et de demontrer l'incidence potentielle des rapports sociaux de sexe au primaire sur la reussite scolaire. L'auteure vise egalement a montrer la presence d'une certaine forme de feminisme au primaire. L'analyse des donnees fait ressortir qu'un rapport actif a la scolarisation joue en faveur des filles a l'ecole. Les mobilisations personnelles des filles et celles de leurs meres conjuguees creent une dynamique favorable a la reussite scolaire. Ainsi, non seulement elles s'adaptent au milieu scolaire pour mieux reussir, mais encore elles adoptent des comportement strategiques pour parvenir a leurs objectifs. Elles veulent prouver qu'elles sont bonnes a l'ecole et donner la replique aux garcons qui les enferment dans des modeles stereotypes. Un avenir reussi comme femmes est egalement une source de motivation pour les filles et pour leurs meres. (resume de la redaction)

S'il est vrai que l'on dispose deja d'un certain nombre de travaux sur la scolarisation des enfants de parents migrants en France, ceux-ci ont generalement ete effectues, d'un cote, par des specialistes de l'ecole qui ont pris en consideration les inegalites sociales et le sexe mais ont delaisse l'ethnicisation ou, d'un autre cote, par des specialisates de l'immigration qui ont tenu compte des inegalites sociales et de l'ethnicisation/racisation a l'ecole mais ont delaisse le genre. Cet article propose une approche transversale interdisciplinaire comparative qui articule, dans une perspective dynamique, l'appartenance sociale et la construction sociale des categories de sexe et des categories raciales ou ethniques. Il resume les resultats d'un bilan analytique de la litterature sur les enfants de parents migrants et l'ecole produite dans les differentes disciplines des sciences humaines ainsi que d'un bilan analytique de la presence des femmes dans la litterature sur les migrations, evalue les donnees statistiques disponibles et presente des elements d'une enquete exploratoire.

Malgre la presence accrue et diversifiee des femmes sur le marche de l'emploi et les preoccupations professionnelles qu'elles manifestent, les services d'orientation et d'aide au cheminement de carriere leur offrent souvent des actions s'appuyant surtout sur des comprehensions masculines. Apparait donc la necessite d'elaborer des modeles theoriques et des programmes d'action correspondant aux besoins des femmes, aux enjeux reels auxquels elles doivent faire face et aux moyens qu'elles utilisent a cet egard. Cette priorite anime les recherches des auteures depuis plus de quinze ans et a mene a une conceptualisation s'articulant autour de trois elements theoriques: la dimension relationnelle, la perspective globale de vie et la singularite des trajectoires.

Renee Cloutier, Claude Trottier et Louise Laforce. Les projets de vie et l'insertion professionnelle de femmes et d'hommes titulaires d'un baccalaureat. Recherches feministes, vol. 12, no 1, 1998, p. 111-132.

Cette etude du type qualitatif porte sur les representations des liens entre l'insertion profesionnelle et les projets de vie de femmes et d'hommes titulaires d'un baccalaureat dans une universite quebecoise en 1986. Au total, 61 entrevues ont ete menees en 1994. L'article tente de repondre aux questions suivantes: comment, huit ans apres l'obtention d'un baccalaureat, des femmes definissent-elles leurs projets de vie en rapport avec leur processus d'insertion professionnelle? Leurs representations sont-elles differentes lorsqu'elles ont des enfants? Quel groupe de femmes semble davantage concilier l'ensemble de leurs projets de vie? Celles-ci connaissent-elles des conditions particulieres d'insertion professionnelle? Quant a leurs collegues masculins, se distinguent-ils des femmes? Cette etude s'inscrit dans une recherche visant a comprendre le processus d'insertion profesionnelle de titulaires de grades universitaires. Au terme de l'etude, la conclusion est axee sur l'importance de tenir compte de la dimension relationnelle dans la sphere non marchande pour saisir le processus d'insertion professionnelle des femmes.

Claire Lapointe. Les libertes et les contraintes dans l'experience de professeures d'universite: une analyser critique feministe de la culture organisationnelle. Recherches feministes, vol. 12, no 1, 1998, p. 133-154.

Cet article presente une partie des resultats d'une recherche sur les representations de professeures d'universite quant a leur experience en tant que femmes qui travaillent dans une organisation et occupent des postes traditionnellement masculins. Le cadre d'analyse retenu est l'approche critique feministe de la culture organisationnelle. En s'inspirant de la methode ethnographique et de la technique des niveaux de saturation des donnees, l'auteure a mene 34 entretiens semi-diriges aupres de professeures d'une universite quebecoise. Les donnees recueillies permettent de preciser le caractere plus ou moins rigide de la culture de cette organisation en ce qui a trait a la liberte que les professeures possedent dans la definition de leur role et l'accomplissement de leurs taches. Bien que, de prime abord, les professeures se disent satisfaites de leur marge de manoeuvre, des limites apparaissent rapidement. Les principales sont le sentiment d'invisibilite, la perception de sexisme et de discrimination systemique, l'insecurite phsysique et le conflit vecu entre les valeurs et les interets personnels et ceux de l'organisation. Les professeures elaborent toutefois des strategies qui leur permettent de faire et de prendre leur place a l'universite. (resume de la redaction)

Claudine Baudoux. La mobilite sociale et le mobilite de sexe chez les femmes cadres des universites. Recherches feministes, vol. 12, no 1, 1998, 155-185.

Cet article expose les resultats d'une recherche quantitative et qualitative menee a propos des femmes cadres dans les universites quebecoises. Les resultats indiquent que certaines femmes cadres connaissent une mobilite sociale ascendante par rapport a leurs parents (les cadres masculins se trouvent davantage dans un processus de mobilite sociale) et que plusieurs femmes cadres connaissent une mobilite de sexe.

Jeanne d'Arc Gaudet. Un modele de design pedagogique innovateur. Recherches feministes, vol. 12, no 1, 1998, p. 187-210.

Dans cet article, l'auteure decrit les resultats partiels d'une etude du type quasi experimental effectuee dans le cadre de sa these doctorale. L'une des hypotheses de recherche est la suivante: la moyenne des resultats aux post-tests (etapes et produits) du groupe ayant ete forme selon le modele de design pedagogique modifie sera significativement plus elevee que celle des resultats aux post-tests du groupe ayant ete forme a partir du modele de design pedagogique non modifie. Pour verifier l'hypothese les travaux pratiques executes a l'interieur de deux cours de formation aupres de deux groups (temoin et experimental) ont ete analyses et les resultats demontrent que, lorsqu'on propose des modifications au modele de design pedagogique pour repondre aux besoins et aux preoccupations des femmes travaillant dans les secteurs traditionnellement masculins, un bon nombre de personnes en tiennent compte dans la conception de systemes d'apprentissage.

Esther Deom, Diane Drouin et Jacques mercier. La formation et l'elimination des prejuges envers le travail des femmes : des lecons pour l'evaluation des emplois en contexte d'equite salariale. Recherches feministes, vol. 12, no 1, 1998, p. 211-222.

La Loi quebecoise sur l'equite salariale, adoptee en novembre 1996, visa a eliminer la partie de l'ecart salarial, entre les hommes et les femmes, causee par la discrimination systemique qui prend sa sourve dans les prejuges et les biais sexistes a l'egard de la valeur du travail des femmes. Pour atteindre l'equite salariale, la loi prevoit, entre autres, l'utilisation d'une methode analytique d'evaluation des emplois. Cette derniere fait appel au jugement des evaluatrices et des evaluateurs, subissant l'influence de leurs propres valeurs. L'idee de base est de montrer l'importance de la formation pour l'elimination des biais sexistes dans le processus d'evaluation des emplois. A partir d'un exercice realise dans la fonction publique du Quebec, au debut des annees 90, la presence de deux types de biais sexistes est etudiee dans les auto-evaluations de titulaires de poste. La conclusion formulee est la suivante: une formation-sensibilisation a la discrimination et aux prejuges envers le travail des femmes ainsi qu'une formation technique sur l'evaluation des emplois sont prealables et necessaires afin d'atteindre reellement l'equite salariale.

Sylvie Cromer et Adela Turin. Que racontent les albums illustres aux enfants? Ou comment presente-t-on les rapports hommes/femmes aux plus jeunes? Recherches feministes, vol. 12, no 1, 1998, p. 223-230.

Les auteures decrivent les principaux resultats de la premiere phase du programme Attention Album! sur le sexisme dans les albums illustres pour les enfants de 0 a 9 ans, programme de recherche europeen concernant la France, l'Italie et l'Espagne, finance par la Commission europeenne et coordonne par l'Association europeenne du cote des filles. Les albums illustres sont non seulement la premiere litterature de jeunesse mais un materiel pedagogique de premiere importance dans les ecoles maternelles et primaires. C'est pourquoi l'Association s'est donne comme objectifs, d'une part, de verifier quelles etaient les representations des filles et des garcons ainsi que des femmes et des hommes dans la production d'albums de fiction en 1994 et, d'autre part, d'analyser l'impact des images sur les enfants. Les conclusions de l'etude statistique des albums sont on ne peut plus claires: une ecrasante majorite de personnages masculins accaparant tous les roles et toutes les professions; on constate une absence notable de personnages feminins adultes. Quant a l'enquete du type qualitatif, elle devoile la vision fortement stereotypee des roles sexues de la part des enfants, que ce soit a Paris, Montpellier (France), Salamanque (Espagne) ou Milan (Italie), et de la part des adultes -- notamment des hommes --, l'inquietude marquee de voir, par la remise en question du sexisme des livres, leur identite sexuelle menacee.

Gisele Bourret. C'est toujours une question de droits. Recherches feministes, vol. 12, no 1, 1998, p. 231-242.

Cet article presente les principales preoccupations et revendications qui ont anime le Comite de la condition des femmes de la Centrale de l'enseignement du Quebec (CEQ) depuis sa formation en 1973 jusqu'a nos jours. L'auteure montre a travers ce bilan qu'un comite de condition des femmes dans une organisation syndicale contribue veritablement a la prise en charge, par l'organisation, des problemes vecus par les femmes dans toutes les dimensions de leur vie, se fondant ainsi sur l'affirmation, a l'origine du feminisme radical, a savoir que le prive est politique. Les luttes menees par le Comite de la condition des femmes de la CEQ n'ont pas toutes eu le meme succes. Certaines, portees en coalition, comme les droits parentaux ou l'equite salariale, ont connu un denouement satisfaisant, tandis que d'autres, comme l'acces a l'egalite syndicale ou en emploi pour les femmes, se heurtent toujours a des formes diffuses de resistance. Aujourd'hui comme hier, la specificite de la situation ou des problemes des femmes est toujours presente lorsqu'il s'agit d'etablir des priorites d'action ou de mener des luttes d'ensemble. Les enjeux actuels lies a la restructuration du travail et de l'economie sont importants pour les femmes, car ils posent notamment, et de facon encore plus marquee, les questions de la reconnaissance du travail gratuit ou invisible des femmes, de l'equilibre ou de la continuite entre la sphere du prive et celle du public. Pour que l'education continue d'etre un veritable outil d'emancipation pour les femmes, il faut qu'elle permette a toutes et a tous de creer un equilibre ou une harmonie entre toutes les dimensions de l'activite humaine. Dans un contexte ou les seules forces du marche semblent faire la loi a l'echelle mondiale, les groupes de femmes de tous les secteurs de la societe doivent plus que jamais travailler de concert pour preserver les acquis, defendre leurs droits et proposer des solutions de rechange fondees sur l'egalite, la justice et le respect de la dignite de la personne.

Francine Belanger. Egalite en emploi dans les commissions scolaires: le portrait d'un secteur traditionnellement feminin. Recherches feministes, vol. 12, no 1, 1998, p. 243-251.

En 1995, le Comite consultatif d'acces a l'egalite dans les commissions scolaires, forme a la demande de la Centrale de l'enseignement du Quebec (CEQ), amorcait ses travaux en matiere d'acces a l'egalite. Conformement a la demarche preconisee dans le Reglement sur l'acces a l'egalite, la premier tache du Comite a ete la mise au point d'un portrait de la situation du personnel feminin. Le Portrait statistique du personnel feminin des commissions scolaires permet d'illustrer de multiples facettes du travail des femmes pour l'annee 1993-1994 dans le reseau de l'enseignement, un secteur d'emploi traditionnellement feminin marque par la persistance de la sous-representation des femmes parmi le personnel d'encadrement. Les enseignantes, les gestionnaires et les professionnelles y occupent plus d'emplois precaires et a temps partiel que leurs collegues masculins. Par ailleurs, le secteur anglophone se distingue du secteur francophone par une meilleure represente des femmes parmi le personnel d'encadrement et le personnel professionnel.

Des sa fondation en 1991, la Federation quebecoise des professeures et professeurs d'universite du Quebec (FQPPU) a mis en place un comite permanent charge d'etudier les conditions d'exercice de la profession chez les professeures. Une breve histoire de ce comite fait ressortir que sa priorite initiale fut l'etude des programmes d'acces a l'egalite; plus recemment, une analyse a ete menee sur toutes les clauses relatives aux femmes dans les conventions collectives de tous les syndicats membres de la Federation.

Susan Driver. "Feminist Sublimations, Queer Disidentifications: Losing Touch of Maternal Sexuality." Tessera, vol. 25 (Winter/Spring 1998/1999), Special issue: Seductive Feminisms, p. 25-37.

In her article, the author writes: "My desire to reorient feminist and queer psychoanalytic readings of the maternal away from normative bipolarities toward a greater attentiveness to (con)textually nuanced embodiments of maternal subjectivity is driven by what I consider to be some of the most intriguing aspects emerging out of these theoretical projects which point beyond reproductive maternal ideologies." She exposes the failures of psychoanalytic feminist and queer critics in effectively theorizing the "imbrications of mother love and lust." By turning to the work of Teresa de Lauretis, she hopes to redirect the conversation between feminist and queer critics. (Journal abstract)

This conversation was recorded at the Women & Texts Conference, University of Leeds, July 1997. Shawna Dempsey and Lorri Millan discuss art as cultural activism and the ways in which they use public spaces to engender discussion, challenge heteronormativity and educate in ways that are accessible and fun.
