Dene and explain the feminizaon of poverty. How has it
a#ected you?
Feminization of social and/or cultural influences are the motivational actions of women
and their right to equality, freedom, and opinionating their voices, however, tragic events can
alter this conceptualized reality. The “Feminization of Poverty” is a direct result many of women
whom are “divorced or never-married mothers” and according to Schaefer (Schaefer, 2011, p.
203), 51% of poverty is the direct result of such feminization. Equally important to note;
additional contributions include drastic changes in economic statue, debilitating circumstances
such as spousal death, all intensifying the uncertainty during transitional times. Regardless of
geographical location and/or culture, the statues of women continue to be degraded which is
solely based upon their assertive gender, poverty or not.
Women have long been classified within societies “second class” and labeled as; whether
by cultural reflection or through morals and/or marital beliefs, individuals of servitude. Life
changes effects everyone, however, history has shown that the female gender has provided new
cultural perceptions through different social responses. Sociology: A Brief Introduction explains
that such historical events have triggered the evolution of “feminization of poverty”, yet; perhaps
a miscued perception by today’s standards as triggering events resulting in drastic uncertainties
will alter anyone level of functioning. Feminization is unfortunately a disturbing social reality
that affects economic circumstances.
