"Unlike most Quebec militant films, and unlike most labour-oriented documentaries made in English in Canada and elsewhere, A Wives' Tale is pre-eminently, self-consciously, happily and proudly a feminist film, insisting on the priority of women's experience and women's wide-ranging voices and visions as its perspective on the strike."
