A practical guide to PhotoVoice: sharing pictures, telling stories and changing communities  
http://www.pwhce.ca/publications_order.htm

A step by step guide on how to bring together small groups of women to capture their stories foster discussion of their community's issues such as women's poverty, food security and health.

In a PhotoVoice project, after training from a professional photographer, women use a disposable camera to take pictures that represent their experiences of living in poverty, and the policies and programs they would like to change or keep. The women then meet to share their pictures and talk about what the photos mean to them. Their powerful images can be showcased in public showings, to broaden awareness of the realities of living in poverty and stimulate action for just social and economic policies to improve women's lives.
