Summary, etc.:
This film points out the inadequacies of single-industry towns that have been built primarily around jobs and not around people. Little provision is made for organized activities outside the narrow framework of company jobs. However, in view of the depression and isolation experienced by women living in these towns, steps are being taken to improve community life. This film shows the importance of taking women's needs into account when planning such communities."
