A Sisterhood of Suffering and Service
Women and Girls of Canada and Newfoundland During the First World WareBook - 2012
As the body of First World War literature continues to grow, women's experiences of this period remain largely obscure. This innovative collection addresses the invisibility of women in this literature, particularly with regard to Canadian and Newfoundland history. Drawing upon a multidisciplinary spectrum of recent work � studies on mobilizing women, paid and volunteer employment at home and overseas, grief, childhood, family life, and literary representations �� this book brings Canadian and Newfoundland women and girls into the history of the First World War and marks their place in the narrative of national transformation.
