Title
Authorité genre et expertise : le cas de l'assistance catholique à Montréal
Abstract
Between the 1930s and the 1970s, the Catholic financial federations of Montreal -- the Fédération des Oeuvres de charité canadiennes-françaises and the Federation of Catholic Charities -- raised the money needed by Francophone and Anglophone social agencies in order to pursue their work. The author explores two shifts in authority that bookended the existence of both federations during the period studied, from elite volunteer women to businessmen, and from businessmen to male social workers. She argues that these shifts were gendered and marked by changing ideas of authority and expertise during the twentieth century.
