Women and the Economics of Divorce in the Contemporary United States.
Arendell, Terry J.
Signs, v13 n1 p121-35 Fall 1987
Households headed by women are more likely to be poor than those headed by men. The number of impoverished female-headed families is increasing due in part to the rising divorce rate. Other factors are the following: (1) lack of child care; (2) wage discrimination; (3) unfair divorce settlements; and (4) inadequate public assistance. (VM)
