In Women's Changing Landscapes, three generations of Canadian women explore their experiences of the shifts and changes in the world around them. Grandmothers, mothers and daughters from a broad range of cultural backgrounds and experiences speak of their struggles, their triumphs and their achievements. The women come from every region of the country and each region is introduced with an overview of the important social, economic, political and feminist developments of the twentieth century. Together these voices give a sampling of the rich diversity of women's experiences and bring into focus issues that shape women's lives. Sometimes poignant, sometimes humorous, but always honest and insightful, these intergenerational accounts provide a valuable glimpse of Canadian women's history and contributions.

Women's Changing Landscapes originated as a project to celebrate the UN conference on Women in Beijing. It was designed as a collaborative research project between professors and their students in Women's Studies courses. Christine St. Peter, Eliane Silverman, Keith Louise Fulton, Greta Hofmann Nemiroff, Huguette Dagenais and Linda Christiansen-Ruffman have contributed the introductions. The participating students interviewed their mothers and grandmothers and wrote their own personal stories. The intergenerational accounts provide dynamic comparisons and capture the voices and experiences of Aboriginal, Anglo-European, Chinese, Eastern European, Egyptian, Francophone, Guatemalan, Japanese and Québécoise women.
