We Have a Message: Women’s Stories of Aging, Disability and Homelessness

Women’s Stories: aging, disability and homelessness is an art and social justice project that is currently taking place in Toronto. The project consists of Red Wagon collective members among a group of women from the Junction area who have gathered to do a photo-documentary project. The intent of this project is to generate knowledge about the realities of poverty through photography and narratives. We want to speak about our experience with the intention that these issues do not get ignored. We also intend to understand the intersections of women living with precarious housing and poverty and how these are impacted by the aging process and health. Ultimately we need to work with others towards change.

This monograph includes many images and excerpts of the knowledge and analysis that was spoken during our discussions, recorded and transcribed.
