Why Women Are More Likely To Be Poor

Featured Member Post

Lots of people say we no longer need feminism.  Women are more likely to graduate from college than men, and for women without children, the pay gap has shrunk.  But women are more likely to be poor, and most women still become mothers. Their poverty is much deeper if they are parenting alone.  You can say the pay gap is a myth, as fantastical as the Tooth Fairy and Santa Claus.  But there is no magic wand to make women's poverty disappear.
