Podcast: Policies of Exclusion, Poverty & Health: Stories from the front

Text Size: Normal / Medium / Large

Policies of Exclusion, Poverty & Health: Stories from the front, which is the outcome of an intense study of 21 women living in poverty in one Canadian community.

The series includes the 21 stories, written in the women’s own words, plus two reports – also written in the first-person and so from the storytellers’ perspective. The first report draws out the dominant themes found in the stories. The second details the storytellers’ recommendations for positive change and offers encouragement and advice to other women in poverty to “mobilize, galvanize, and politicize.” Together, the stories and reports contain surprises that challenge long-held assumptions about Canada’s poor.
