Show Summary Details


This chapter presents some concluding thoughts from the author. It begins with a review of the stories of the women in the preceding chapters. Despite their differences — these women's paths to welfare, their various experiences with education and training programs, and their readiness for work — all are similar, having raised their children for a time in poverty. Welfare reforms, and their impact on women and children, are discussed.
