The Coercive Sterilization of Aboriginal Women in Canada. (Paper )

This paper considers the coercive sterilization of Aboriginal women in both legislated and non-legislated form. In Canada, there exists but one concise history of eugenics, and other works dealing with sterilization have rarely progressed beyond an examination of the legislation itself. Nonetheless, studies have confirmed that Aboriginal women were disproportionately targeted by enacted legislation in the province of Alberta.
