The Women of New Orleans and the Gulf Coast: Multiple Disadvantages and Key Assets for Recovery Part 1. Poverty, Race, Gender and ClassPublisher(s):
The briefing includes recent data from federal government sources on poverty among women and people of color in New Orleans and the Gulf Coast region in Louisiana, Mississippi, and Texas. It also draws upon IWPR's series of reports on the status of women in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. The paper concludes by outlining policy alternatives to help rebuild women's lives in a way that will allow them to ultimately leave poverty behind.
