Abstract

The high rate of women living in poverty and participating in programs such as income assistance, food stamps, and Medicaid health insurance is tied to their unique, gender-based obligation to care for others without compensation. It is important that nurses, who work in a field traditionally conceptualized as women's work, understand and participate in the formation and analysis of social policies that affect women living in poverty.
