On violence against women and poverty in Ontario. Details policy recommendations.

Opening text: “This is a project about women, not as a homogeneous and objectified category, but about women as agents whose lives are shaped by the multiple dimensions of their identities, including their Aboriginal status, age, class, disability, race, sexual orientation, gender identity and status (be it
family, immigration, or health). It is a project that speaks to the realities of women’s lives, in particular the harsh realities of poverty and violence.”
