Women's and Children's Poverty: Making the links

Women's and Children's Poverty: Making the links

Ratings: (0)|Views: 54|Likes:
Published by Oxfam
This report explores the links between women's and children's poverty. The key message is that women are 'shock absorbers' in the home, and that government targets to reduce child poverty cannot be successfully achieved without attention to women's poverty. The report is based on both academic and experiential expertise in this field.
