You Can't Keep Us Down

1985, 23:00 minutes


As cutbacks in social services increase, single mothers are among the hardest hit. The Regent Park Sole Support Mothers' Group formed several years ago to fight these cutbacks and to provide a support group for low-income single mothers. This video shows "the moms" organizing and working together: at meetings, community events and discussing welfare issues, the women's movement, their daily lives. With the music of Arlene Mantle.
