Female breadwinners's adaptation methods in the light of the feminization of poverty phenomena in some Egyptian governorates

08.06.2018 / Created by (EMWF)

"Feminization of poverty" means that poverty rates are higher among women than men because women are preoccupied with unpaid roles (maternity and family welfare), while men engage in paid work which means that wealth is concentrated in men’s hands while women remain poor. The United Nations Human Development Report of 1997 considers that this term also reflects the unequal access to education, employment and property ownership. The aim of this present research is to identify the various life adaptation methods that women apply to face the phenomenon of feminization of poverty, as well as to understand the concept of poverty from the point of view of women and the nature of the relationship between social and economic variables.
