Final Reports: Issues and Recommendations

These final reports complete the WISE book and represent the culmination of an intense project which was done by low-income women in my community.

As much as the preceding portions of the book - the story behind the project and the stories by the women - are compelling, the first report reflects the women's own assessments and hopes for the future and contains shocking and unexpected facts. The second report completes the book with the women's recommendations and is full of surprises, particularly in light of the preceding stories and the Issues report. It stunningly challenges assumptions concerning where the solutions truly lie and who the real "stakeholders" are or should be.
