Abstract:  This booklet is intended to be a guide for sorting out the most common problems encountered by women when trying to obtain welfare, mother's allowance or when returning to school.

"It was written to help women get through the welfare maze, and to spread the word about how some of us have been organizing. All of us who worked on it, wrote it for the mothers on government assistance fighting for more money and against the worst intrusions of the welfare bureaucracy. We also wrote it for the mothers fighting the tangle of rules and regulations that stop us getting off welfare. And it's for those returning to school to upgrade skills, who have to juggle grants, loans, course loads and unhappy kids at home."
