Don't Call Us Out of Name
General Assembly 1999 Event 286
Speaker: Lisa Dodson
Beacon Press author Lisa Dodson offers a radically new version of women and girls living below the poverty line. She makes a frontal assault on conventional attitudes and stereotypes of women in poor America and the seriously misguided "welfare reform" policies. During this workshop, she read excerpts from her latest book, "Don't Call Us Out of Name."
Lisa Dodson is principal investigator of Welfare in Transition, a collaborative research project of Radcliffe College and the cities of Cambridge and Boston; a fellow at the Radcliffe Public Policy Institute; and teaches at Harvard University on women and poverty.
