DescriptionFour women fall into conversation in a launderette. As the machines whirl and the powder flows, they talk about their housing experiences, hopes and expectations. None of them would describe themselves as homeless - after all they've never slept out on the street. However, as they listen to each other's stories they begin to understand that homelessness is indeed something they've all experienced. Home and Dry analyses the inadequacies of present housing policies and examines the political thinking that lies behind them. It reveals how women's housing needs and requirements must be given priority as a vital and neglected component of today's housing crisis.
