About the Author

Marilyse Hamelin is an independent journalist, blogger, and public speaker. As a committed feminist, she is often invited by Radio-Canada and other media to discuss the burning issues concerning women's rights. This is her first book. Arielle Aaronson is a Montreal literary translator whose work includes QC Fiction novels Behind the Eyes We Meet by Mรฉlissa Verreault and Listening For Jupiter by Pierre-Luc Landry, which she co-translated with Madeleine Stratford. Toula Drimonis is a Montreal-based freelance writer, editor, and award-winning columnist and a frequent guest on English and French-language radio and television. A former News Director with TC Media, her freelance work has appeared in the National Post, the New York Times, Ricochet Media, Ms. Magazine, Buzzfeed Canada, Huffington Post, J-Source, and Le Journal de Montrรฉal, among others. Politics and women's issues remain her main points of interest.


"Journalist and blogger Hamelin's debut on systemic gender inequality is a timely reminder that, despite decades of incremental changes, stereotypes and other significant barriers continue to plague women in the workplace... a worthy contribution that rejects the notion that women's equality has been achieved, while also proposing changes to reach that still elusive goal." --Publishers Weekly
"An admirable boldness infuses Marilyse Hamelin's Motherhood, The Mother of All Sexism... Hamelin has done a great service" --Kerry Clare, Quill & Quire
..".vastly interesting, informative, and most importantly, perspective-altering. A particularly significant and relevant book for the times." --James Fisher, The Miramichi Reader
