Item Description...
Overview
The decade of the 1680s saw a growing rift between the rich and the poor in America. Poverty increased among female headed families more rapidly than among any other population group. Blessed Are The Poor? argues that the language of long standing American tradition self sufficiency has informed American family policy and has in turn contributed to the growth of women's poverty.

Publishers Description
In this penetrating examination of the reasons behind women's poverty in the United States, Pamela D. Couture argues that a logic of interdependence, informed by a feminist reappropriation of the classical theological tradition of Luther and Wesley, offers a basis for a more responsive, and responsible, family policy of "universalized care." Blessed Are the Poor? argues that the language of a long-standing American tradition--self sufficiency--has informed American family policy and has in turn contributed to the growth of women's poverty.
