Female voices are rare in the historical record of the Mennonites. Nevertheless, Mennonite women were influential in shaping Mennonite and Canadian society. Mennonite Women in Canada, the first comprehensive history of Mennonite women, traces their role over the past two hundred years. Marlene Epp explores women's roles within the contexts of immigration, family, church life, work, education, and social life. Comparing how Mennonites dictate women's place within society with how women actually behave, Epp finds a contradiction between behavioral ideals and practicalities. Also, women's responses to dictates about their proper place vary widely, unsettling a clear delineation of their roles. Using diaries, oral histories, genealogies, and memoirs, Epp presents a fascinating story of Canadian Mennonite women that deserves to be read by women and men everywhere.

Review:

An original and most welcome contribution. This book will be of interest to researchers, teachers, and others interested in Mennonite history, Canadian women's history, Canadian church history, and Canadian immigration history. Put simply, there is no parallel history of Mennonite women published in the Canadian context. -- Lucille Marr
