  Maude Barlow

Barlow was a high-profile leader in the women's movement in Canada, serving as the Director of Equal Opportunity for the City of Ottawa and leading a national coalition against violence against women. She later became Pierre Trudeau's advisor on women's issues when he was Prime Minister in 1983-84, but left formal politics in 1985 to help found the Council of Canadians (CoC), of which she has been the elected honorary chairperson since 1988, earning her living through her books. The Council now has 100,000 members and 70 activist chapters. Its original mandate was to campaign against the Canada-US Free Trade Agreement and to fight for Canadian sovereignty in the area of natural resources (including water), social programs and foreign policy. Most of Barlow's work has been focused on the regional and global trade agenda, with water being an issue of equal special concern. She is the author or co-author of 15 books on all aspects of globalisation and the theft of the 'global commons', the latest being Too Close for Comfort, Canada's Future in Fortress North America. She is also working through the Council of Canadians on a ten-city "Citizens' Inquiry Into Canada/US Relations", a "Beyond Factory Farming Coalition" and a fair trade campaign. She has received honorary doctorates from six Canadian universities. . . . short bio
