In front of a live studio audience, Oprah is joined by Maria for a discussion about her documentary "Paycheck to Paycheck: The Life & Times of Katrina Gilbert." In association with "The Shriver Report," the film tells the moving story of a year in the life of Katrina Gilbert, a 30-year-old mother of three who works as a certified nursing assistant. Her daily struggles illuminate the challenges faced by millions of women living at or below the poverty line despite having a job. Oprah and Maria also speak with other families on the brink of economic devastation, exposing one of the most challenging situations facing Americans today.

EXCERPT: Maria Shriver on Why Women on the Brink Matter:

OPRAH: Why is this a story for our times?

MARIA: Because this is where the vast majority of Americans find themselves: without savings, living paycheck to paycheck, dying under student loans, not being able to, you know, get up over the brink. Seventy percent of all minimum wage workers are women and they can't live. They can't live in our country on that salary.

OPRAH: Yeah. So I know that you're more than just a producer of this film. This is in your blood. Your father, Sargent Shriver, was one of the architects of the war on poverty. He founded the Peace Corps. And so what do you think we, as a body of people, could be doing better?

MARIA: Well, I think we first could be talking about it. Which is were why I think this is so important.

OPRAH: We're talking. We're talking.

MARIA: This is so important. Because I think when daddy started the war on poverty under Johnson, Johnson used his pulpit as President to talk about the vast majority of Americans who were struggling. At that time, women were primarily in the home and government's job was to come up with these programs. I think now we see that women are in the workplace and they're looking for businesses to support them. So there's a lot that can be done by business, by government, and by women and men.

EXCERPT: Oprah and Maria Talk to a Couple About Breaking the Cycle of Poverty

OPRAH: You know, poverty is such a hard cycle to break. I, for one, believe that, you know, what you're doing, education, is a way out of that. Do you think you will break the cycle of poverty for your family?

TISHA: I have broken the cycle. My daughter is in college. She's the first grandchild to go to college.

OPRAH: Yeah. (Applause.) You have, indeed.

MARIA: Can I ask him a question? I was just watching you. So many of the men we talk to said they felt they were only wanted to be a provider.

OPRAH: Yeah.

MARIA: And that they didn't know what their role was in the family if they weren't providing, they didn't feel like they were the man.

OPRAH: Mm-hmm.

MARIA: And I just was wondering. I could see your eyes welling up with tears. What you're feeling.

TIMOTHY: Well, I'm extremely proud of my wife. She's a big supporter in my life and she's like the oxygen that I breathe. Without air, I couldn't survive. And without her, I couldn't survive. So, I mean, it's just been -- she -- she's so strong and she has so much strength. And watching her, it strengthens me.
