About this item

Shelter in a Storm brings together the personal and the political to ask: What is neoliberalism? How does it harm women? And what can be done about it?

The book looks at how three YWCA women’s shelters in Ontario were affected by the neoliberal policies of Mike Harris’s Progressive Conservative government and the subsequent "new-neoliberal" policies of Dalton McGuinty’s Liberal government. Drawing on interviews with forty-one staff, clients, volunteers, and activists, Shelter in a Storm exposes the dangers for women that are embedded in neoliberal policies and reveals the value of revitalizing feminism to counteract this powerful ideology.
