Description - Women's Work is Never Done by Sylvia Bashevkin

Social critics, policy makers and the public in general frequently overlook the crucial status of women as the main recipients of welfare and as providers of paid and unpaid care. The eight, original essays in this collection remedy this situation. By comparing welfare policy in advanced industrial countries and the welfare experiences of different populations of women - black or white, young and old - with that of the male experience, Sylvia Bashevkin and her contributors challenge the Moynihan report; the conservative fatherhood movement; and neoliberal philosophy, politics and practise. Women's Work is Never Done adds a new dimension to the important public discussion of women's status as citizens, disparities in welfare reform and poverty in a globalized world.
