Contributors demonstrate that informal traditional and popular expressive cultural forms continue to be central to Canadians' gender constructions and clearly display the creation and re-creation of women's often subordinate position in society.

As I child I had a guilty fascination with the undisciplined women in the folktale books I inevitably received each Christmas. I secretly approved of their deliberate belligerence, but I also noted that justice prevailed.

Women and Tradition: A Neglected Group of Folklorists. The introduction as a whole does not provide a focus, and so the book really doesn’t hang together. Some of the pieces are pretty straight biography; others, like Georgina Boyes’ fine examination of Alicia Bertha Gomme, do a great deal to help the reader understand the subject’s place as a woman and a scholar.

Contributors demonstrate that informal traditional and popular expressive cultural forms continue to be central to Canadians' gender constructions and clearly display the creation and re-creation of women's often subordinate position in society. They not only explore positive and negative images of women - the witch, the Icelandic Mountain Woman, and the Hollywood "killer dyke" - but also examine how actual women - taxi drivers, quilters, spiritual healers, and storytellers - negotiate and remake these images in their lives and work. Contributors also propose models for facilitating feminist dialogue on traditional and popular culture in Canada. Drawing on perspectives from women's studies, folklore, anthropology, sociology, art history, literature, and religious studies, Undisciplined Women is an insightful exploration of the multiplicity of women's experiences and the importance of reclaiming women's cultures and traditions.
