"The contributors to this edited volume critically reflect on some of the key methodological and analytical issues that a gendered analysis of poverty needs to address. The conclusion emerging from this collection is that it is impossible to integrate gender into an understanding of poverty unless the reading of evidence and the analysis are grounded on the relational processes of accumulation and impoverishment.

These are foundational issues, and have serious implications for public action to reduce/eradicate the different kinds of poverty that men and women experience."--BOOK JACKET.
