Nobody Wants to Hear Our Truth: Homeless Women and Theories of the Welfare State

Synopsis

The author conducted interviews for over five years with 20 homeless and addicted women with different experiences of sexual abuse and sexism and racism. They vividly demonstrate how both neo-conservative and neo-liberal prescriptions for solving their problems are unworkable. The work considers the linkage of homelessness and addiction, provides profiles of the interviewee, and outlines methodology used in the research.
