This documentary on the state of poverty among women and
children in Canada examines the welfare system as a perpetuator
of a set financial status.  A cry for change in an inadequate
program, "Welfare Mother" looks at issues of racism and sexism
within the context of the system while exploring the increasing
trouble presented by our national economic state and the poor
response of the welfare institution.  Through interviews with
the welfare recipients, major areas of difficulty are cited as
inefficiency, lack of incentive and absence of opportunity for
recipients to seek and secure alternatives to the income
provided through welfare.
