Low Income Women Speak Out through Photovoice Projects in Winnipeg and Saskatoon

PhotoVoice is a participatory action research method pioneered by Carolyn Wang. PhotoVoice is a process that enables community members to produce photographs to document their experiences. The photographs become the basis for group discussion of community issues and concerns. The photographs and words become tools for social change, by providing resources to raise consciousness and influence policymakers. "Low-income women are often subject to careful scrutiny and surveillance by others. Rather than putting them under the lens, photovoice puts them behind the lens and allows others to see the world through their eyes" The Prairies Women's Health Centre of Excellence website has the details of this project.
