Quotes about After the Vote

"Now [After the Vote] seems an astonishingly lucid document for its time, the first wedge in the closed door on women's issues in Canadian documentaries since the war."
-- Barbara Halpern Martineau (source)

"After The Vote is part and parcel of the feminist movement in Canada and raises the question of what we've gained since we got the vote: very little. We are still exploited as workers, overworked and guilted as housewives and mothers, seduced by the fraudulent appeals to our sexuality and patronized as thinkers."
-- Myrna Kostash (source)
