CROP POVERTY BRIEF: By Sarah Bradshaw, Sylvia Chant & Brian Linneker.

December 2017

In this poverty brief Sarah Bradshaw (Middlesex University), Sylvia Chant (London School of Economics and Political Science) and Brian Linneker (Independent Scholar) debate: What do we think we know, what do we actually know, and what do we need to know about women's poverty, and how does this relate to poverty alleviation programmes?

The authors conclude that while a feminised and feminising monetary poverty has been assumed, there is little evidence on which to base this assumption. As such more research is needed on these other dimensions of gendered poverty if anti-poverty programmes are to improve women's wellbeing.
