The Feminization of Poverty Among African-American Mothers in Single Parent Households in Georgia During the Current Decade of 2010-2020 Despite the widespread misperception that women are achieving economic equality, their economic status has deteriorated sharply since the late 1960s. Today women—and children— are the primary beneficiaries of social welfare programs for the poor. Between the mid-’60s and mid-’70s, the number of poor adult males declined, while the number of the poor in households headed by women swelled by 100,000 a year (Kodras & Jones, 1991).
