Includes bibliographical references. --- Review, Network Fall 2005: Young women work -- in their homes, in our community, in schools, with other youth and in the labour force. But young women who live in poverty continue to find themselves unable to make our economy or society work for them. Struggling to stay in school, working for low wages, and lacking childcare, young women face many challenges. At risk of a future living in poverty, and possibly raising another generation to do the same, young women want to work to build a better future and community. This participatory feminist research project sought to describe the barriers and opportunities for young women in the "new" economy, and outlines Community Economic Development approaches to preventing poverty among young women ages 15 to 24. The authors found that young women are ready and willing to participate in holistic programs that respect their cultural backgrounds, and build strong futures for themselves, their families and their communities.
