Her image has changed. The French-Canadian woman of today is no longer the chattel of yesterday, without legal rights and with limited career opportunuites. Speaking of the struggle to bring about change, the evolving role of women in Quebec society, and the challenges still ahead are some very articulate ladies: Senator Therese Casgrain, Judge Rejane Colas, a nun, a Playboy bunny, and seveal feminists.
