March 2010

The March 2010 online issue of Canadian Social Trends released today celebrates International Women's Day with three articles. The first article, published as part of the Living with disability series, is entitled "Life satisfaction of working-age women with disabilities." This article examines factors that can affect satisfaction with daily activities, with relationships with family and friends, as well as with health.

The second article, "Precautions taken to avoid victimization: A gender perspective," examines the role gender plays on precautionary actions taken to avoid victimization for the core working-age population living in large urban centres.

The third article, "The Census and the evolution of gender roles in early 20th century Canada," looks at how the role of women in society changed over the early part of the 20th century and how these changes were reflected in the Census of Canada.

Also, this issue includes two fact sheets that contain various social and economic data for women and men.

The three articles are now available in the March 2010 issue of Canadian Social Trends, no. 89 (11-008-X, free), from the Key resource module of our website under Publications.
