Notes: 
Review, Network Fall/Winter 2001/02: This book came out of a project, funded by the Prairie Women’s Health Centre of Excellence, which brought together fifteen low-income mothers in Saskatoon of preschool-aged children, who had taken part in programs like collective kitchens and parenting groups. It documents the barriers faced by low-income mothers and challenges the negative stereotypes too often associated with "welfare mothers."
