What Happens When Some Women in a Literacy Program Decide to Do Something They Consider Woman-positive? (Report of Research Project 1991, 1992 ) (1992)

This article describes research conducted to answer the question: “What happens when some women from 12 very different literacy programs decide to do something woman-positive?”

The research focused on what actually happened when a group of women looked at how adult literacy and basic education programs across Canada fail to pay attention to the realities of women's lives. In the process they engaged in effective literacy work, empowered many women (including themselves), challenged and affirmed feminist analyses, and helped a wide variety of programs become more woman-positive. This group of women documented its work so that those involved in adult literacy, non-profit agencies, education institutions, coalitions, and policy development can pay attention to the lives of women and other marginalized groups.
