Income under Female versus Male Control: Hypotheses from a Theory of Gender Stratification and Data from the Third World.
Blumberg, Rae Lesser
Journal of Family Issues, v9 n1 p51-84 Mar 1988
Summarizes Blumberg's theory of gender stratification, which emphasizes relative male/female control of economic resources as a main predictor of multiple gender stratification consequences. Reviews evidence from Third World countries that men and women spend income differently, such that, when women lose control of income, family well-being and their relative marital/familial power and self-esteem suffer.
