Title of French version: Moi? jamais de la vie.
abstract
Noted Canadian feminist and educator Rosemary Brown talks to a group of high school students at Toronto's Bloor Collegiate about the high incidence of poverty among Canadian women. The talk is interwoven with historical stills and film footage showing women at work and at home up to the present, illustrating how women have always been vulnerable to poverty. The film looks at the feminization of poverty in Canadian society, and Brown warns that unless young women take control of their lives and recognize the needs for equality in the home and work place, they face a bleak future of this poverty.
