I got the question "In what ways did Canada become a welfare state between 1931 and 1982? How did this affect the way Canadians saw themselves? In what ways do you think the economic and social inequalities continued?" and I wanted someone to check over my answer, to see if it makes sense.

Canada became a welfare state between 1931 and 1982 y creating government programs to ensure a minimum standard of living, such as family allowances and a health care system. This altered the way Canadians saw themselves because they would see that they couldn't support themselves. Economic and social inequalities continued in the form of racist attitudes towards the first nation and Metis people, as status Indians didn't get the right to vote until the 1960's, and are still trying to gain autonomy, And also in the form of sexist attitudes towards women, as in the 1960's women fought for equal pay for equal work, paid maternity leave laws against sexual harassment and health and reproductive rights.

If someone could read this over and help me out that would be appreciated.
