Sole support mothers face many barriers to employment and to education. In this article, the author discusses ways to breaking down these barriers, such as providing: improved and increased subsidized day care facilities; access to affordable housing; improved training allowances; an end to restrictive criteria for access to training allowances, and; an end to discrimination that places different cultural, racial, and economic groups in competition for slender, resources. We need to give sole-support mothers an equal opportunity in the marketplace.

In this article, the author discusses the growing number of aging women in Canada and the lack of educational opportunities available for this group. Aging women are still the "invisible majority" of elderly in Canada, despite their increasing numbers. Current educational opportunities for older women are almost nonexistent. Older women have been socialized to have low expectations of what is available to them in the way of educational programming. And older women often have low expectations of themselves - they experience feelings of being "too old", "too dumb" or of it being "too late".
