Giving Voice to Low-Income Women

Here's a great project:

Low Income Women Speak Out Through Photovoice Projects in Winnipeg and Saskatoon

Public policies have a big impact on the lives and health of women living in poverty. Yet low-income women
are rarely given a voice in shaping these policies. In the fall of 2005, Prairie Women's Health Centre of Excellence
began working on two projects to address this situation, in partnership with two community-based organizations,
the Winnipeg North End Women's Centre and the Saskatoon Anti-Poverty Coalition. Together we initiated
photovoice projects with small groups of low-income women in Winnipeg and Saskatoon.
 

You can download a selection in powerpoint. Check it out.
