A sample bibliographic reference (APA style) and annotation:
McIvor, S. D. (1995). Aboriginal women’s rights as “existing rights”, Canadian Woman Studies/Les Cahiers de la Femme 2/3, 34-38
This article seeks to define the extent of the civil and political rights returned to aboriginal women in the Constitution Act (1982), in its amendment in 1983, and in amendments to the Indian Act (1985). This legislation reverses prior laws that denied Indian status to aboriginal women who married non-aboriginal men. On the basis of the Supreme Court of Canada’s interpretation of the Constitution Act in R. v. Sparrow (1991), McIvor argues that the Act recognizes fundamental human rights and existing aboriginal rights, granting to aboriginal women full participation in the aboriginal right to self-government.
