A critical textual analysis of the 6 issues of Towards Justice in Health, a magazine published by Nurses for Social Responsibility (NSR) between 1992 and 1995, makes visible their work. True to their purpose, NSR provided an alternative and courageous voice on the political nature of health and health care that was largely missing in mainstream nursing literature at that time. Towards Justice in Health both documents the emergence of the new economic world order and concomitant shift to the right in Canadian politics during the early 1990s with its impacts on health care and the nursing workplace and provides a grassroots response.
