REAL Women of Canada has reported that “feminist research is still thriving in Canada and on the taxpayer’s dollar.” The Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council under Industry Canada is the source of numerous grants for feminist and gender studies, says REAL Women, reporting that “since 1998 SSHRC has funded 1,494 research projects in the area of gender issues and 1,792 on women’s issues.” Beneficiaries of the grants include the Canadian Research Institute for the Advancement of Women, the National Action Committee on the Status of Women, and the Centre for Feminist Research at York University. Research projects include television representations of women in the war on terrorism, queer women on the net, motivations and emotions of women in pole-dancing classes, and “transmasculine parenting experiences.”
