Lisa Pasolli, “‘I ask you, Mr. Mitchell, is the emergency over?’ Debating Day Nurseries in the Second World War,” Canadian Historical Review 96, 1 (March 2015): 1-31.

This is a first-rate piece of revisionist scholarship. Well researched and well written, it reframes the daycare debate in Canada, away from mobilization during the Second World War and the place of women in that war, towards a more nuanced discussion of welfare, education, and women’s rights. It traces continuities in many perplexities around daycare that remain with us today.
