As a nation, Canada faces critical decisions. A way must be found to ensure a sustainable level of social and economic development that respects the fundamental values and needs of Canadians, in a demanding world. If Canada's social and economic development is to survive the impact of globalization, a strengthened social security system is needed, as well as a comprehensive employment development strategy. Women's perspective and contributions are an essential part of addressing that challenge. It is believed that the principles and recommendations in this brief will help to address these issues.

Roanna Yangco undertook this research while working at the Adult Literacy Program in Dorchester, Massachusetts which is housed in a multi-service center/shelter for single mothers and their children.
Yangco states: “In this research study, I wanted to establish a sufficient working definition of violence, one that encompasses all of the complexities of violence that affect low-income women. I hoped to identify the impacts of violence on the women in our literacy program. Using this knowledge I wanted to influence the design of a comfortable learning environment that facilitates a lifelong desire for learning. Finally, I looked to making our experience known beyond our program.”
