Publisher Comments:

Praised widely as an outstanding contribution to social welfare and feminist scholarship, as well as political advocacy, Regulating the Lives of Women tells the story of social welfare from women's perspectives.<P>The critical new insights in this new edition of Regulating the Lives of Women will appeal to policymakers, activists, academics, and general readers interested in social welfare, sociology, women's labor, and African-American Studies.

Synopsis:

This important book looks at the changes in AFDC, Social Security, and Unemployment Insurance, and welfare "reform." This new edition reveals how welfare policy scapegoats women more than ever to justify widespread retrenchment and to divert the public's attention from the real causes of the nation's mounting economic woes.
