Summary
"Poverty among the elderly is sharply gendered - women over sixty-five are twice as likely as men to live below the poverty line. Recent efforts of some in Washington to reduce and privatize social welfare programs threaten to exacerbate inequality among women by race, class, and marital status. Madonna Harrington Meyer and Pamela Herd explain these disparities in Market Friendly or Family Friendly? and asses how proposed policy reforms would affect inequality among the aged. They contrast the impact of market friendly programs that maximize individual choice, risk, and responsibility with family friendly programs aimed at redistributing risks and resources."--BOOK JACKET
