the Ontario government for compensation and won her case She s a brave woman who stood her ground until she was granted some justice In 2005 The Globe and Mail included it in their top 100 reviewed books of the year The book, which made our reviewer weep, is a searing indictment of a time and attitude we would do well not to forget The Globe 100, Globe and Mail During the depression, girls were being sent into reformatories for vaguely labeled charges that included incorrigibility, truancy, theft, running away and sexual immorality Concerns were primarily centered on female sexuality

theft, running away and sexual immorality Concerns were primarily centered on female sexuality Demerson account of her relationship with a Chinese man deepens the understanding of the social boundaries that prevented such interracial mingling For a white woman to be enslaved to a Chinese man was unthinkable The fact that there were laws preventing women to be employed by Chinese men stresses the severity of society position on white women associating with Chinese men Thus it came to no surprise that Demerson interracial relationship would be considered an act of immorality and considered an offence by Canadian law at the time.Demerson s personal account of her life successfully explored her particular socio economic roots and conflict with society Whether it was her family background, her relationship with a Chinese man or the terms of her incarceration, these were all pivotal factors in identifying the social constructs that existed at the time Demerson experience could be consideredan emotional than an informative one nevertheless, her account deepens the understanding of a time when Canadian society operated under a very different set of social boundaries than what exists today A fascinating read for anyone interested in understanding the divisive racial and gender issues in Canada at the time This book made me sad, angry, depressed and outraged Velma

wrong with the obstacles that she faced, that it would be easy to go off on any number of rants Instead I will just say that these events are not so firmly buried in the past that we can try to forget about them Variations of these sorts of situations pop up in the news on a frighteningly regular basis As long as we profit from dehumanizing others or think of ourselves as being superior to others, we are all vulnerable Racism and sexism are still commonplace, and we only need to look at the prison systems and government policies toward enemy combatants or even those without citizenship to see how quickly we can be stripped of all rights and subject to the worst human abuses
