Reimagining Care/Work Policies

Lisa Pasolli is an Assistant Professor of History at Queen’s University. Her work examines the history of women, gender, social policy, and child care in 20th century Canada. Among her publications is the book Working Mothers and the Child Care Dilemma: A History of British Columbia’s Social Policy (UBC Press, 2015). Her current project, which is made possible by the wonderful ECEs at her son’s unionized child care centre, explores the history of child care and taxation in postwar Canada.
