Abstract

This study compares audits of Nova Scotian women's groups in the years 1990 and 2004 to argue that such groups, which sustain feminism, have increased in number although there have been changes in structures and in respect to salient issues. Résumé Cette étude compare des vérifications faites sur des groupes de femmes néo-écossaises en 1990 et en 2004 pour prouver que de tels groupes, qui supportent le féminisme ont augmenté en nombre, quoiqu'il y ait eu des changement dans les structures et à l'égard des questions saillantes.
