In our last issue we mistakenly credited Marie Letellier of Relais femmes as being co-author with Madeleine Parent of NAC for the article "Preamble to a Consultation of Women's Groups/Préambule à la rencontre de groupes de femmes". Madeleine is the sole author of the article. Marie provided input and comment, but did not co-write the article. Mea Culpa, Madeleine.

About the Cover
These women are shredding cabbage in a dehydration plant in Vernon, B.C., in 1943. This plant was used to produce foodstuffs for soldiers stationed in Canada and overseas. Many married women took their first jobs on the assembly lines of such plants as this one.
Ces femmes déchiquettent des feuilles de choux dans une usine de déshydratation à Vernon en C.-B. L'usine produisait des aliments pour les soldats en poste au Canada et a l'étranger. Beaucoup de femmes mariées trouvèrent leur premier emploi dans des usines comme celle-ci, où on faisait du travail à la chaîne.
