For this general issue perusal of the barriers that girls and women still experience in accessing education in this country (and why are articles on this topic still so easy to collect?), we are grateful for the informative and insightful contributions of Marie Barton, Stephanie Garrow, Janice Gingell, Monique Hébert, June Larkin, Dorothy MacKeracher, Nilima MandaI Girl, Sandra Monteath, Margot Schenk, Nathalie Stephens, and Lynda Stokes. Poetry is by Helene Blais, Catherine Lake, and Annette LeBox; original illustrations were contributed by Fran Thoburn.

Nathalie Stephens' volunteered time in producing the Resources/Ressources Section is also greatly appreciated. CCLOW acknowledges the continuing financial support of the Women's Program, Secretary of State.
