Messaging ‘the Feminization of Poverty’

This presentation, a part of CWF’s 2017 Symposium titled “Encountering the Poor: A Feminine Lens on the Problem of Poverty”, featured Elizabeth Schiltz, Professor of Law, Thomas J. Abood Research Scholar, and Co-Director of the Murphy Institute for Catholic Thought, Law, and Public Policy at the University of St. Thomas School of Law. Schiltz’s talk,  What is a ‘Good’ Feminist to do about the Role of Families in the Feminization of Poverty?, explored strategic and rhetorical suggestions for introducing questions about family structure into the larger issue of the feminization of poverty in ways that will not close down the debate.
