Shriver Report: Portraits of women's lives on the brink
One out of every three women in America either lives in poverty or on the brink of poverty. These women come from all over the country, from all walks of life. Those who are not already in poverty live in deep financial insecurity; one minor accident away from losing everything.
The Shriver Report aims to shine a light on that financial insecurity, and provide answers for how poor women can be lifted up. In coordination with the release, the Shriver Report produced a gallery of women on the brink, to show how they live, work, and provide for their households. Maria Shriver discussed how poverty shapes the lives of countless women and children today.
