Confronting the Cuts examines the impacts of the dramatic spending cuts on women and their families across the province, as well as explores some of the ways women and women’s organizations have responded to the challenges presented by the current economic climate. The voices in this book come from those struggling at basic levels of subsistence and from those working in policy reform, human services and popular organizing. By exposing some of the myths in fiscal policy development and critiquing social policy reform, this book is an important resource tool for women and community groups interested in beginning the process of developing new and innovative strategies to deal with the effects of the cuts. For anyone seeking to understand current social policy reform and its impact on the lives of people everywhere, this book is a crucial sourcebook of policy critique, strategies, and personal narratives. This best-selling volume includes articles by Armine Yalnizian, Sunera Thobani, Martha Friendly, Kim Anderson and Cathy Crowe among many others.
