Book cover of "Working Mothers and the Child Care Dilemma" by Lisa Pasolli

"This book will shock you with historical details of the discrimination mothers have faced over the last 100 years in B.C.," writes child-care advocate Sharon Gregson about Lisa Pasolli's award-winning book Working Mothers and the Child Care Dilemma.

Pasolli, an assistant professor of history at Queen's University, will speak on Monday, March 11 at the annual Marie Hammond Callaghan Women's History Prize event, held at 7 p.m. in the Owens Art Gallery. Her talk is titled Redistributing Care: Reflections on the History of Canadian Child Care.

Pasolli's book, described as a "must read for anyone interested in Canadian child care," is available in the R.P. Bell Library's book display.

In her introduction to the book, Pasolli notes that "...negotiating expectations about work, both paid and unpaid, at the boundaries of social citizenship was complex and often contradictory for mothers. This negotiation is as apparent today as it was in the 1910s."

Monday's event, which is open to the public, is organized by the Mount Allison History Department.
